Thirty-eight years after Terry Fox was forced to end his Marathon of Hope, our citizens still respond to his Terry Fox Run legacy in a way that is truly Canadian – by coming together in over 700 small villages and big cities, raising money without incentive or profile, and helping to make our country’s cancer research the best in the world. All without fanfare or fuss; the Canadian way.
Terry Fox had a single dream: a world without cancer. Come and join us – from coast to coast we will be celebrating the power of the human spirit as we work together to outrun cancer. For event details or more information, visit terryfox.org
