Run Organizer’s are recruiting Terry’s Team Members for the 31st Annual Terry Fox Run and The Foundation and Run Organizers are inviting cancer survivors to come out and celebrate the benefits of cancer research and awareness with a free Red Shirt and a place of honour as Terry’s Team Members at their local Run. Research that has come about largely thanks to the remarkable efforts of a timeless young man, Terry Fox.

31 years ago, Terry Fox ripped the band-aid off cancer to show the world the realities of cancer in exposing his artificial leg

Terry’s Team Members uphold his legacy of strength, courage, and generosity, proving that cancer survivors are ready and willing to continue where Terry left off.

The fact is that if Terry were diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma today, instead of being given a 30% chance to live, he would be looking at a 90% survival rate,’ explains Donna White, Provincial Director of The Terry Fox Foundation BC/Yukon, a cancer survivor and a testament to the difference that research is making in the fight against cancer ‘and what’s wonderful about his legacy is that it’s not just about the type of cancer Terry had, or cancers affecting youth, or men, or women.

The Foundation funds research in to all kinds of cancer, believing as Terry did, that we need to conquer this disease once and for all for everybody.

For information about your local Terry Fox Run, The Terry Fox Foundation and its initiatives, please visit www.terryfox.org or call 1-888-836-9786.
