Terry Fox Foundation encourages virtual participation for the 40th Annual Run.
This year marks the 40th annual of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.
The Atlantic Provinces are coming together virtually to compete in the 400 for the
40thchallenge. Like many big events planned for this year, the normal Terry Fox
walk or run will not be able to go ahead.
Provincial Director of Terry Fox Foundation Newfoundland and Labrador, Kirk Leach, said in July, they hope to have at least 400 participants who can show support for Cancer Research in any form they chose.
Leach said they can participate in any way- whether that be walking in your neighbourhood or up and down the stairs in a home. He explained that the fundraising needs to continue because cancer is not waiting for COVID-19 to be over.
The Foundation is encouraging participants to upload photos and videos to social media and tag them at Terry Fox Foundation. The big day is Sunday, September 20th and all funds raised goes towards Cancer Research- something Terry Fox never gave up on.
