Organizers of the Terry Fox Run in Leduc have stepped aside and the annual fundraiser will be cancelled.

Volunteers of the Leduc run have chosen to step down this year and no one else has come forward to help organize the event.

Jennifer Caswell, provincial director for the Terry Fox Foundation, says she is disappointed.

"The community of Leduc has been so supportive of Terry Fox Run raising just under $4,000 for the last several years. They've been an amazing support and since 1983 they've raised $83,000."

The Terry Fox Run will go ahead as planned in 170 other Alberta communities on Sept.15.
