This year marks the 33rd Anniversary of the Terry Fox Run! Terry Fox, one of our greatest Canadian heroes, has left a legacy that has continued to grow and spread since he embarked on his Marathon of Hope on September 1, 1980. Every year, people around the world are inspired to gather in his memory to raise money for cancer research through the Annual Terry Fox Run. Since he first set out on his epic trek, over $600 million has been raised worldwide (Cornwall has raised over $320,000) for innovative cancer research in Terry’s name.
The Terry Fox Run will be held on Sunday, September 15th at the Cornwall Civic Complex between 7:30AM and Noon. Everyone is invited to walk, bicycle, run or skate 1km to 10km along the bike path. Participants can register inside the Civic Complex by making a personal donation of any amount, or by collecting pledges from friends, neighbours, family members and co-workers ahead of time and remitting their pledges at the Run Site.
Pledge forms can be picked up at BMO and RBC Banks, the Cornwall Public Library, Fitness Clubs, both LCBO locations, Pat’s Home Cookin’, the Aquatic Centre, the Benson Centre, Short Line Convenience & Video Store and Play It Again Sports. Participants can also download and print their own pledge sheets or collect pledges online by visiting www.terryfox.org.
