What sets us Apart

For over 30 years The Terry Fox Foundation has worked to achieve Terry’s vision – a world without cancer.  Our researchers, our staff and our thousands of volunteers are determined to reach that goal. We strive daily to uphold Terry’s ideals and values in everything we do – and we always will.

Every year Terry Fox Runs are held in over 9000 communities across Canada with the goal of raising funds for cancer research. We work directly with The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI – the research arm of the Terry Fox Foundation) striving for the best outcomes for cancer patients.

The Terry Fox Foundation funds many different types of cancers; current multi-year studies include lung, ovarian, colorectal, pancreatic, oral, liver, oncolytic viruses and many more.

To date over $700 million has been raised in Terry’s name for cancer research.

Over 9,000 Terry Fox Runs each year – all volunteer-led and organized
