Back in 1997 when I was sitting waiting for the nurse to start my first chemo treatment I saw a picture of Terry Fox on the wall. The nurse told me that his research money actually helped develop the drugs for my treatment. I had always been a participant in the annual Terry Fox Run and when the run in Newmarket needed an Organizer I decided to take it on as that day back in 1997 stuck in my head.
In 2005 I became a Volunteer Organizer and haven’t looked back. What a rewarding feeling the annual “Run Day” is. A sea of people all sharing Terry’s goal to find a cure for cancers. I couldn’t do it without the help of so many volunteers as well as the staff at the Terry Fox Foundation who are always there to encourage and support you. Thank you

I am very proud to be part of the Terry Fox family and to a lead a team of amazing people. We are blessed to be able to raise money for cancer research. We are healthy and do it for those who can’t. The feeling after the Run is indescribable.
