Terry Fox Run


TCPHS students run in the annual Terry Fox Run

Terry Fox is one of Canada’s greatest heroes and considered the ultimate role model for people of all ages.  Terry’s efforts to raise money for cancer research, after loosing his right leg when only 20 years old to the disease, emulate the best that the world can offer.

Terry set a personal goal to run across Canada in order to raise awareness and financial support to accomplish his goal.  He ran an average of 42 km a day, the distance of a typical marathon. He faced his illness with courage and determination; however, Terry’s cancer spread to his lung and he had to abandon his run.  Terry succumbed to his illness one month before his 23rd birthday.  Terry’s “Marathon of Hope” not only captured our nation’s heart and attention but also countries around the world. We can each learn a great deal from Terry Fox’s “Marathon of Hope” and use his example as a focus in our everyday lives.

In his memory, Town Centre Private Schools holds its annual Terry Fox Run each September.  Thanks to the generosity of the TCPS students and their families, TCPS is able to donate funds each year to the Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research.
