It’s not how far Terry got. It’s how far he got us.
This September marks the 39th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. People across Canada will come together to honour the courageous spirit of this young man by fundraising for cancer research at The Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 15th.
Terry ran an unbelievable 5,373 kilometres in 143 days. He persevered through pain, weather, personal doubt, frustration. He never gave up. And neither have Canadians, who have taken his remarkable example to heart and assumed his cancer research legacy as their own. With almost 10,000 fundraising events nationwide Terry’s footsteps echo loudly in Canada in September.
“I know how proud Terry would be to know that the Terry Fox Run has become a fall tradition for millions of Canadians,” says Terry’s older brother Fred Fox.
On Sunday, September 15, join in a favourite Canadian fall tradition by taking part in the Gananoque Terry Fox Run. You contribution will ensure that cancer research continues to move closer to a cure every day. Register and start to fundraise at terryfox.org.
On-site registration begins at the Town Hall Park at 9am, start is at 10am.
