Terry Fox Run September 20th: One Day. Your Way.

September 20th, and the 40th anniversary of Terry Fox Runs across Canada, is quickly approaching.  This year will be virtual and the slogan is “One Day. Your Way!”

To heighten the awareness of Terry’s virtual run, please wear a Terry Fox T-Shirt on Friday, Sept 18th to work, school or wherever you are. Let’s spread the word!

You can run, walk, bike, urban pole, swim, kayak, or any other activity anywhere and anytime of the day you choose to support our Kingsville Terry Fox Run.  Let’s present a united front in celebrating Terry’s Marathon of Hope from 40 years ago and continue to make Terry’s dream a reality.

After being forced to stop, Terry said that it had to keep going without him but I’m sure he never would have imagined how much money would be raised for cancer research in his honour.

You can still:

– Register as a participant or create a virtual team (family, friends, work team)
– Make a donation to our Terry Fox Run Kingsville site at www.terryfox.ca/terryfoxrun/kingsville
OR
You can join or donate to my MFit team at www.terryfox.ca/MFit
All funds will be credited to our Kingsville site. If you prefer to give cash or a cheque, please contact me directly.

To purchase the 2020 Terry Fox T-shirts, masks, books, etc., go to the main website at www.terryfox.org

You can also download the new app when you register. That will link you with other participants, track your steps and enable you to participate on a virtual map.  Let’s make Terry and Kingsville proud!!

And some words of encouragement from The Terry Fox Foundation:

The Terry Fox Virtual Run is just days away and we need your help now, more than ever!

As we all know, this year is challenging us to do things differently, to try things we have never done before. After Terry was forced to stop he said, “Even though I’m not running anymore, people should go ahead and try to do their own thing.” On Sunday September 20th we invite you to do it “Your Way” at the 2020 Virtual Terry Fox Run. One Day. Your Way by choosing a route and location to safely walk, run, bike, hike, skate or wheel.

Your support last year made an enormous difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families. In 2019, Terry Foxers like you helped to fund 437 researchers and 47 research projects.

Cancer research cannot wait until the pandemic is over.

Can we count on your support again? Register or donate at www.terryfox.ca/terryfox/kingsville to fundraise today!

Your friends at The Terry Fox Foundation

P.S. There’s still time to buy a shirt, mask or other merchandise at shop.terryfox.org
