Joe Pillitteri is running with his Terry Fox fundraiser again this year, having raised more than $22,000 during a night of comedy and entertainment at Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery on Sept. 1.

Two hundred people sat socially distanced in an outdoor venue for the COVID-era fundraiser. Pillitteri deemed the event a special night under the stars in a social media post thanking the community.

“As friendly faces started rolling in, I took a moment to recognize how lucky I am to live in a community that I live in and to be surrounded by such love and generosity,” he wrote.

This year the Terry Fox run will operate virtually on Sunday, Sept. 20. Participants can sign up online and are encouraged to run anywhere they are.

“Around your neighbourhood, backyard, down the street, or around the block,” the official page states.
