Join Canadians across the country in Fundraising for Cancer Research in the Annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021.

The Terry Fox Foundation has announced that the Terry Fox Run will once again be virtual this year with millions of Canadians determined to honour Terry’s legacy by supporting or participating in virtual runs across the country, raising funds for cancer research.

In honour of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, the annual Terry Fox Run brings together Canadian communities across the country to celebrate Terry’s legacy and raise critical funds for cancer research.

The Foundation is proud to announce that the 41st Terry Fox Run will once again take place, safely and virtually, connecting millions across Canada and the world. You can learn more by going to the Terry Fox Foundation website.

Locally, for the past 40 years participants have gathered together in support of the Terry Fox Run and have raised $677,325.09. We invite all to join and participate in the annual Terry Fox Run, one day, your way in support of cancer research. To find out more about the annual Canada wide run you can see the formal media release from the Terry Fox Foundation here. You may have noticed Terry Fox signs and posters across the city! It’s not too late to join, and we welcome all individuals of all ages to participate. To register go to this link here.

You may choose your distance, walk, bike, run, hike or skate. Although the event is virtual in 2021, the Terry Fox Foundation is optimistic we can meet in person in 2022. The local run organizers can be reached via email at premo134@hotmail.com or lisaporcol@gmail.com

T-shirts are also available upon request. We look forward to seeing Terry Foxers out in support of the run!
