It is truly moving that the heroic, unselfish mission of one young man serves as such an inspiration to all of us no matter where we live in the world. The Terry Fox Run, named in honour of Canadian amputee runner Terry Fox who at 21, attempted to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research, is no longer just a Canadian tradition. Countries around the world stage annual events in support of Terry’s dream of finding a cure for cancer. Nearly all the money raised is remitted to institutions accredited by the International Union Against Cancer in Geneva.
As the world becomes more homogenized, so too does the Terry Fox Run. The Foundation is proud to be involved in a growing worldwide family dedicated to eradicating a disease that knows no political or geographic boundaries.
International Run locations are organized by Canadian Embassies/Consulates, Canadian Forces Bases, Anti-Cancer Councils and Societies as well as other dedicated organizations and individuals. The reports that we receive suggest that the Terry Fox Run provides an important opportunity for solidifying the good name that Canada has always had with people around the world.
The Terry Fox Run is an annual non-competitive charity event held in numerous regions across the globe in commemoration of cancer activist Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope to raise money for cancer research.
The Dubai Terry Fox Run is one of the UAE’s foremost charity fundraising events, raising more than Dhs7 million for cancer research since it was started in 1998. Everything to do with the event is donated, ensuring that every dirham raised goes to cancer research in the UAE.
