Lace up, Victoria!

The 43rd annual Terry Fox Run is just around the corner, and over 600 communities across the country are expected to participate—that’s around 4 million Canadians!

Join the Terry Fox Foundation and your fellow residents this Sunday September 17th, as the whole city gets together to run, bike, wheelchair, or walk for cancer research.

The route begins at the Terry Fox statue at Mile 0 in Beacon Hill Park—once runners reach St. Charles street, they will turn and run back. The total distance is 5 kilometers!

Registration begins at 9 a.m., opening ceremonies and the run warmup will follow, and the run is set to commence at 10:30 a.m. and end at around noon. 

Everyone is asked to wear their best red and white outfit inspired by Terry’s Marathon of Hope t-shirt. 

According to the Terry Fox Foundation, since Terry Fox’s ignition of cancer research fundraising in the 1980s, Canadians have helped raise over $850 million!

The legacy continues to spark hope for those affected by cancer—if you wish to donate or register for the run, you can do so here.

Who will you be running for?
