The 11th Terry Fox Run in Guangzhou, the largest single-day fund raiser for cancer research worldwide, will be held at the Luhu Golf & Country Club on Saturday, 7 December 2013.

This event aims at raising funds for local cancer research institutes and promoting citizens' understanding and awareness to cancer. The organizing committee expected that there will be more than ten thousand enthusiasts to take part in this year's Terry Fox Run in Guangzhou.

Named after an inspiring young Canadian man, Terry Fox Runs have been held in more than 5000 locations across 30 countries. This year marks the 33rd anniversary of the Terry Fox "Marathon of Hope". In addition, the Terry Fox Foundation has launched commemorative shirts, each shirt costs RMB 80. All the earnings after deducting the cost will be donated to the local hospitals or institutes designated by The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) for cancer research. Meanwhile, companies and individuals can support this event in many different ways, such as auctions, sponsorships and donations.
