Terry Fox set a personal goal to run across Canada in order to raise awareness and financial support to cancer research.  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 held its annual Terry Fox Run on Wednesday, September 29th.  Observing social distancing guidelines, students committed to join in and walk, jog or run in the TCPS “Marathon of Hope” in support of cancer research Since 2006, TCMPS has raised an amazing grand total of $216,017.43 for the Terry Fox Foundation! Our goal this year is to raise over $12,500!
