Find Your Ride Experience

Join Terry Foxers far and wide as we ride and raise funds for cancer research!

The origins of the Ride of Hope date back to 2015 when Terry’s brother Darrell, together with five friends, decided to create a cycling challenge by riding 350km to Mount Terry Fox in northern BC for the 35th anniversary. Every year since, close to 30 riding enthusiasts and friends come together, supporting each other as they cover a lot of ground from sunrise to sunset. Over $500,000 has been raised for cancer research to date. We believe those who ride like to give back while challenging themselves, so are looking to expand the event model and introduce it to communities across Canada. 

Terry ran all day, every day for 143 days. We are humbled and inspired by Terry’s commitment to dig deep simply to help others. The intent of the Terry Fox Ride of Hope is to offer participants a unique experience and challenge where riders come together to encourage and assist each other. The focus and goal, consistent with Terry’s dream and wishes, is to raise additional funding for cancer research.

Whether it is a group ride, solo cycling journey, or ambitious biking adventure, the Ride of Hope is a collection of different ride experiences organized by volunteers across the country who want to go the distance to make a difference, just as Terry did. If you are interested in leading a ride in your community, or know of someone who might be, please send get in touch with us at rideofhope@terryfox.org.
