When Terry Fox dipped his prosthetic leg in the Atlantic Ocean on that chilly April morning in 1980, and started his Marathon of Hope, he could not have imagined the impact he would have on our country – nor how his courage and determination would continue to inspire Canadians.
Today, 43 years later, Terry’s mission continues with hundreds of Terry Fox Runs, thousands of school Runs, and millions of supporters across Canada and in more than 20 countries around the world. It is inspiring to see that Terry’s message of hope is as strong as ever.
“It fills our family with joy to see Terry’s legacy inspiring future generations,” says Fred Fox, Terry’s older brother. “Every dollar raised by the people who join or support the Terry Fox Run helps fund cancer research. And every dollar helps realize Terry’s dream of a world without cancer.”
Please join us on Sunday, September 17, 2023, where Canadians across the country will gather once again for Terry and for cancer research. They’ll walk, run, bike, roll, and hike. On Bowen, all are welcome including dogs on leash. Our run can be started between 11 am and 12 pm at Bowen Island United Church.
