Terry Fox Run, September 15, 2013

September 12, 2013

Blog, Caring Community

The annual Terry Fox Run will be held on Sunday, September 15, 2013 to raise funds for the Terry Fox Foundation.

The 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.
There are many ways you can get involved to support research on cancer. You can donate,  you can start a Terry Fox Run team or join a team online. Learn more here on how you can participate.
