Run Organizers

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.
