The Terry Fox Foundation

Never give up. Give back.

In 1980, Terrance Stanley "Terry" Fox – a one-legged amputee and cancer victim – embarked on a cross-Canada run in a quest to raise money and awareness for cancer research. The Canadian athlete turned humanitarian and cancer research activist ran for 143 days and completed 5,373 kilometers before succumbing to the disease.

His one selfless act has inspired millions around the globe who have come together since 1981 to fulfill his dream. Today, The Terry Fox Run is the world's largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research, covering an expanse of over 60 countries – including Singapore.

"Even if I don't finish, we need others to continue.
It's got to keep going without me." – Terry Fox
