Cornwall Ontario Terry Fox Run – Sunday September 15, 2013 – Civic Complex 7:30 AM

run with terryThis 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

  1. The cancer fund-raising industry in Canada is huge. The Terry Fox Foundation is one of the bigger outfits, as is The Canadian Cancer Society. Still no cure, and no cure in site, and the money just keeps rolling in. Sweet business, for sure.

  2. Cancer is a mutating virus (like the flu) – there will never be a cure. However, new innovative treatments have made some cancers 98% curable. Cancer is no longer the death sentence it was 30 years ago. And yes, some charities have turned raising money for a cure for cancer into a business – its up to the generous people out there to figure out which charitable organization are worth their dollar. Money Sense Magazine grades Charities each year based on many factors. For 2012, 82 cents of every dollar raised by The Terry Fox Foundation went directly to it’s program which is 100% cancer research and the cost of raising one dollar ran only 15 cents. The Foundation is rated an A . As a comparison, only 53.5 cents raised by The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation went to it’s programs which include awareness, counselling, prosthesis and cancer research. The cost of raising one dollar was 34 cents and it was rated a D. But don’t it from me, you can check out the chart at and decide for yourself where your money goes when you make a donation…

  3. Chemo is even more deadly. Seems as many people die from this approach than by cancer itself. I’d do and use as much natural healing methods such as diet, diet, diet and the most cancer protection foods as I could handle…….slug drinks are fabulous with the right mix. Fruits in the am, veggies in the pm.

    Avoid chemo if at all possible.
