Terry Fox Run - September 16
Come out on Sunday, September 16th for the annual Terry Fox run taking place in Langley City. The event features a 1km, 5km, and 10km walking, running, rolling, and strolling route.
The Terry Fox Foundation is responsible for supporting close to $20 million in discovery based research each year in Canada - all monies raised outside Canada must be distributed to (a) an institute approved by the Foundation and its advisors or (b) remitted to Canada. The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) is a recipient of TFF funding for translational research. TFRI is an exciting new initiative whose goal is to translate rapidly today's best science into better cancer treatment and diagnosis for all Canadians. The Institute will bring scientists and clinicians together across the country into a functionally integrated, geographically dispersed Institute with nodes in several provinces.
The Foundation recognizes the duality of its mandate. Not only does it raise money for research, but it also continues to share the story of Terry Fox. The Terry Fox Foundation strives to maintain the heroic effort and integrity that Terry embodied. It is a grassroots organization that does not allow the Terry Fox name or likeness to be commercialized or conjoined with other worthy causes. To date, over $600 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry's name.
