Adhering to The Terry Fox Foundation policies; Terry himself set out many of the policies that govern the Run because he wanted it to be a grassroots, community- oriented event – you have the responsibility to see that those policies are followed.
Responsible for ensuring the safety of the route, accurate balancing of site paperwork and donations, representing the Foundation as a community ambassador.
Managing an inventory of merchandise; merchandise sales are a key means of fundraising (and promotion) – you have the responsibility to ensure that the merchandise is well tended and accounted for.
Making the necessary commitment of time and energy; Terry was, and continues to be today, an inspiration that draws hundreds of thousands of people to Run sites every year – you have the responsibility to ensure your Run site is properly organized and staffed, to make participation an enjoyable and rewarding experience for our most appreciated supporters.
We know our Run Organizers want to do the best job possible and managing time and priorities is always a challenge. More and more Organizers are looking at the role with the intention of bringing or learning some “project management” skills while on the job! It is a great opportunity to try out new skills or enhance existing ones, regardless of the size of the event. Your Provincial Office can help guide the way with a calendar of tasks and duties that are expected for a Run Organizer, together with timely communications throughout the pre-Run season.
