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.
Terry Fox Run Singapore was re-started in 2010 by a group of working professionals hosted under Canadian Association of Singapore.
