Janet Lacy had other commitments the day of the Terry Fox Run but that didn’t stop her from participating in her own way. Last Wednesday afternoon she and two of her sponsors Nancy Strachan and Hettie de Jong were out on Okanagan Lake. Her goal was to paddle board a total of 20 kilometres for the Terry Fox Campaign. Lacy raised $1,200 in sponsorship from local businesses. She said the response from Summerland businesses was amazing. She also said she felt passionate about the cause because of the way cancer touches everyone’s life in one way or another.
