Terry Fox Run Hong Kong

Hong Kong TFR 2016
 
 
 
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Encourages The Terry Fox Run Hong Kong

Join us for the fourth annual community Terry Fox Run held in Hong Kong.  

Terry Fox Run Hong Kong, similar to other Terry Fox Run around the world, aims to continue on Terry’s “Marathon of Hope” and keeps Terry’s aspiration alive. According to the World Heath Organization, cancers figure among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with approximately 14 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer related deaths in 2012. Through the Run, we hope to find a cure for cancer one day.

Since its debut in 2013, Terry Fox Run is becoming one of the key charity events for Canadians in Hong Kong. With the generous support from the Hong Kong community, it is hoped that Terry Fox Run will no longer be a Canadian event, but also a community event in Hong Kong that brings positive energy to the locals. The event is a 3 km, 5 km or 10 km non-competitive, family-oriented run or walk. 

Choose from 3 km, 5 km or 10 km run options on Saturday, November 5th, 2016 at Renaissance College in Ma On Shan.  The Terry Fox Run in Hong Kong is completely volunteer-organized with no budget for expenses and all proceeds go to support cure-oriented, biomedical cancer research in Hong Kong.  Support this important cause, while getting fit, having fun and meeting new people!
