Join Us in Terry Fox Run
How the Marathon of Hope began:
Terry Fox Run was originated from a young Canadian, Terry Fox. At the age of 18, he was diagnosed with bone cancer and had his right leg amputated above the knee. During this crucial period, Terry saw the intense pain and despair of other cancer victims and was deeply moved. Knowing the importance of the need for cancer research, Terry decided to run across Canada in order to raise funds for cancer research. His journey was known as “The Marathon of Hope”. Terry died at the age of 22 before he could complete his crusade. Nonetheless, his legacy is carried in the hearts of all who participate or donate to the Terry Fox Run each year around the world.
