Prince Rupert's own Jim Terrion received more accolades over the weekend for his tireless efforts in British Columbia when it comes to fundraising for the annual Terry Fox Run.

Mr. Terrion who was recently back in Prince Rupert for a few days on his mission to raise funds now lives in Prince George and his dedication to the Terry Fox Run there has resonated with residents of that community, much like they have with those who live in his former hometown.

At the Sunday Terry Fox Run in Prince George, Mr. Terrion was honoured by community organizers for that dedication to a cause that has spanned decades now. Saluted for his fundraising work which to this point has raised 673,363 dollars for the Terry Fox Foundation since 1991.

Prior to Sunday's run in Prince George, Terry Fox Run organizers presented Mr. Terrion with a special plaque of recognition for his fundraising work.

A review of the recognition as well as a number of photos from the Prince George event can be reviewed from the Prince George Terry Fox Run Facebook page.

The story has become part of the early week news flow from the Northern Interior city, some of the items of interest can be found below:

Northern Savings Stefan Delloch, who was one of the key organizers for this years run provided more background on Sunday's event through the Credit Union Facebook page, saluting the volunteers and participants who made the 2016 edition another great success.
