Terry Fox Run

Sunday, Oct. 24, 2004

Look below for more specifics about the Terry Fox and the Terry Fox Run. 

 Who: Terry Fox was 18 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer and had to have his right leg amputated. He then decided to run across Canada to raise funds for cancer research. Although he did not complete his run, he ran the equivalent of a marathon a day for 143 days until his cancer returned.  His journey was called The Marathon of Hope! You can also learn more about Terry Fox and the Terry Fox Foundation by going to www.terryfox.org or www.terryfoxven.org

 What: Participants may run, walk, or skate any of the 2.5k, 5k or 10k courses. The  money  raised will go directly to help fight cancer here in Venezuela.

 When: The Run is Sunday October 24th at beginning at 7:15 am.

 Where:  It begins in Altamira square.

 Why:  Approximately one in three people are diagnosed with cancer. Many of us may have loved ones whose lives may be touched by it.  Participating in the Terry Fox Run is a great way to spend time with your family (babies, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, parents, grandparents….etc.)  and friends and show your support for cancer research.
