This September marks the 39th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. Hundreds of thousands of people will remember this young Canadian’s audacious effort by uniting from coast to coast to coast for the Annual Terry Fox Run on Saturday, September 15th 2019
The longevity of the Run and the cancer research legacy inspired by Terry’s run is a remarkable reflection of Canada’s respect for a man who gave us an indelible example of what it means to persevere. With over 10,000 fundraising events taking place nationwide, it is clear that Canadians have every intention to see Terry’s dream through to fulfillment. Since Terry ran his Marathon of Hope in 1980, Canadians have raised over $750 million for cancer research. This money is invested into projects with the greatest potential impact for patients.
