The Terry Fox Run set off at Guangzhou Luhu Golf and Country Club on December 4 at 8 am. This annual charity event aims to raise funds for local cancer research while increasing public awareness on cancer.
About Terry Fox Run, Terry Fox is a hero in Canada. Losing one of his legs due to bone cancer, Terry proceeded to prove to everyone that it couldn't stop him running all the way across Canada on an artificial leg. That was in 1980 when Terry Fox started a 143-day journey across the country to raise money for anti-cancer medical research. Named after this inspiring young Canadian man, and firstly launched by a group of followers enthused to keep the young man’s dream alive, Terry Fox Run has since spread all across the world from Canada, arriving China in the 1990s. The campaign is now the largest single-day fund raiser for cancer research worldwide.
