Terry Fox Run

Terry Fox Run

In 1980, Terry Fox faced considerable challenges 
while running the equivalent of a marathon a day
for 143 days during his 3,339 mile Marathon of Hope. 
It was all about effort for Terry. 
He challenged himself every day with one goal in mind: 
raise the most money he could to end cancer.

Each year Marc Garneau students and staff participate in the Terry Fox Run to help raise money to support research to end cancer. This year our run date was Thursday, September 26, 2019.
