Toddler and preschoolers at Sonshine Daycare Centre put on their brilliant yellow shirts and put their fleet feet forward earlier this week, running (or sometimes walking, toddling or just riding along in a stroller) during their annual Little Foxes Terry Fox Run.

More than 20 Sonshine kids took part in the run on Tuesday, Sept. 28, along with Sonshine staff and parent volunteers, raising close to $700 for the Terry Fox Foundation. It was the sixth edition of the Little Foxes run, which was on hiatus last year owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“All the kids had fun, we had fun, the volunteers had fun, we all got some exercise, and we’ve raised money for a good cause,” Little Foxes organizer and Sonshine manager Ms. Fifi told the Pioneer. “A lot of us have family, friends or loved ones who have had to face cancer. It’s an important cause, and the Little Foxes run is our way of trying to help out. It’s always a great event – it creates a sense of community, brings us together and contributes to a good cause.”

Ms. Fifi added Sonshine is appreciative of the community support for the run. 

“It’s wonderful to see and share that positive energy,” she said.
