The Terry Fox Fun Run is an annual tradition that is supported in Canadian schools worldwide. Just as Terry Fox did, we will run to raise awareness and funding for cancer research.
Who is Terry Fox?
Terry Fox is a Canadian National hero who embarked on a Marathon of Hope to raise money for cancer research. In his own personal battle with cancer Terry lost leg but was determined to run across Canada to raise funds and awareness. Unfortunately, Terry Fox wasn’t able to finish his journey as he passed away from cancer halfway through his run. We honour Terry, and other cancer victims by running every year and combining efforts as a community to raise awareness and funds.
