Terry Fox Run: Team Up For Terry
“The first 20 years of my life I had been very self-oriented. I had no concern for anyone but my own wellbeing. It took cancer to realize that being self-centered is not the way to live. The answer is to try and help others”. Terry Fox 1979
For millions of people worldwide Terry Fox is the face of cancer research. His Marathon of Hope inspired a country and The Terry Fox Run, now in its fourth decade, continues to motivate people here in Canada and around the world. To date, over $600 million has been raised in support of Terry’s cause.
As a committee member, we are trying to make a positive difference through our actions. Our goal is to continue to raise awareness and gain support in our community. Locally the Terry Fox Foundation has supported cancer research at Brock University with over $600,000 in research funding. This has led to tremendous break throughs.
