TERRY FOX RUN 2011 – What is your race?

We all have our own “races” to run. And our own reasons for running those races. However every year, around this time of the year, everyone puts aside their own “races” and run for Terry Fox. Come join us this Nov 13th (Sun) at Padang Merbok as Boardgamecafe.net supports the annual fund raising charity run hosted for everyone to work together to outrun cancer! There’s also the cool BGC Terry Fox Run t-shirt for you to collect!
