If you were a teenager and had lost your leg to bone cancer, would you run a marathon across Canada? Terry Fox did, back in 1980, so that he could raise money for cancer research. Today, the Terry Fox Run is an annual event in Canada, raising funds for the Terry Fox Foundation and the Terry Fox Research Institute, which invests in cancer research. We speak to Darrell Fox, the younger brother of Terry Fox, who is a senior advisor and member of the Board of Directors for the Terry Fox Research Institute, to find out about Terry’s legacy and the impact of research funded by the institute.
The Terry Fox Run has been organised in Malaysia since 1991. Register for the upcoming run on 18 December 2022, co-organised by Cancer Research Malaysia.
