Terry Fox said, “It’s got to keep going without me.” And this year once again, Canadians from across the country have done just that.
This September marked the 38th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. 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 of seeing Terry’s dream through to fulfillment.
“I know it can be a busy time of year, but there is no better feeling than to come together with family and friends, in your own community, for a great Canadian fall tradition that, quite simply, changes lives for the better,” says Britt Andersen, Executive Director of the Terry Fox Foundation.
We are so grateful to our all Terry Fox supporters, whose kindness and generosity give hope to cancer patients and their families. Ultimately, this is what Terry’s story is…a story about hope. From all of us at The Terry Fox Foundation, thank you.
