It Starts With You!
“Even though I’m not running anymore, we still have to try to find a cure for cancer. Other people should go ahead and try to do their own thing now.”
Our School Run Organizers have taken the mantle of leadership and pardon the pun, “run with it”. As the Terry Fox ambassador, you are responsible for inspiring, motivating and facilitating a successful Run at your school. But you don’t have to do it alone because we have everything you need to inspire the next generation of Terry Foxers.
Book a Virtual Meetup with Fred Fox
Inspire your students with a virtual meetup with Fred Fox, Terry’s brother. Your school will have the opportunity to join Fred as he shares personal memories and stories or growing up with Terry and the Marathon of Hope, along with a closing Q and A for your students.
Whether you are kicking off, wrapping up or simply want to continue to share Terry’s message of hope, a virtual meetup is a great way to inspire your students and celebrate your fundraising success. (Bookings will be offered to schools individually at this time)
