The yearly event supporting the cancer research Terry Fox Run is organised on every Sunday. The event is commenced by various communities in and around BC, starting from Abbotsford to 100 Mile House, through Kamloops and Fernie.
The event is 31-year-old and is carried out with great spirits by the people of the region. As per Terry Fox Foundation’s Donna White, “It’s amazing when you think that this one young man from a tiny place called Port Coquitlam had this simple dream, and he ran into the hearts of every Canadian”.
Many of its participants were associated with the event since its start. There have been a lot of advancements in the treatment for cancer. The event was started by 21-year-old Terry Fox, who exposed his foot to the chilling water of Atlantic Ocean as a mark of starting the event, which is still commenced as the Marathon of Hope.
The event was started by Terry and carried forward by his mom Betty, who had been sincerely working for the commencement of the event since years unfortunately died this year. However, the passing away of Ms. Betty, won't be effecting the enthusiasm of the race, that is going to be held on the coming Sunday.
