Press Release : Sign up for Terry Fox Run 2013 – Singapore

TERRY FOX RUN

Come register for Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope which is marking it’s 33rd anniversary in 2013.

In 1980, Terrance Stanley “Terry” Fox – a one legged amputee and cancer victim – embarked on a cross-Canada run in a quest to raise money and awareness for cancer research. The Canadian athlete, turned humanitarian and cancer research activist, ran for 143 days and completed 5,373 kilometres before succumbing to the disease.

His one selfless act has inspired millions around the globe who have come together since 1981 to fulfil his dream. Today, The Terry Fox Run is the world’s largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research, covering an expanse of over 60 countries – including Singapore.
