Making cancer history

Terry Fox Foundation keeps runner's legacy alive this Sunday.

This year’s Terry Fox Run takes place Sept. 18.

It is a day of celebrating his legacy and helping to keep alive Fox’s dream of finding a cure for cancer.

Terry Fox Runs take place in more 9,000 communities across Canada.
