On April 12, 1980 Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope right here in Newfoundland Labrador.
Terry’s courageous example has inspired millions to work to find a cure for cancer. Today, 38 years after Terry began his journey, more than one million people take part in over 9000 Terry Fox Runs in 32 countries around the world and more than seven hundred and fifty million dollars has been raised for cancer research.
This year’s Terry Fox Run will take place on Sunday, September 16 at Quidi Vidi Lake. You can register for the run at terryfox.ca/terryfoxrun/st-johns or you can just join us on run day and join in on the fun. This is a family friendly, non-competitive event where walkers, runners, wheelchairs, roller blades, bikes, strollers, and dogs on leash are encouraged to participate!
Terry’s wish was that we all come together to help keep his dream of raising money to find a cure for cancer alive. Your participation in the Terry Fox Run will do just that.
