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.

School Merchandise

The 2021 merchandise design celebrates Terry’s maternal grandmother’s heritage - a collaboration between the Fox Family and Metis Nation BC - with traditional Metis floral beading representing the flowers that grow on his ancestors' land. Our mission and message “Try Like Terry” is shared in English, French, and the Metis traditional language Michif. All merchandise sales are added to your school’s fundraising total, and proceeds support cancer research.

Terry’s Virtual Classroom

So many resources to help you “teach Terry” and have fun, all in one place! Go to “Terry’s Virtual Classroom” for a one-stop shop with podcasts, videos, lesson plans, fun activities and more.
Share this google classroom with students, teachers and even your whole school community to inspire everyone to help make this year’s Terry Fox School Run your best “Try” ever!"

Student Leadership
Be Like Terry

Terry Fox set an incredible example of leadership that will never be forgotten. Students across Canada continue to follow in his footsteps, empowered to carry on his legacy and set goals of their own. Enlist the help of a student leadership crew or classroom to organize your event and you’ll reach your fundraising goal in no time. Not only will you broaden student social awareness and support new young leaders for the future, you’ll also raise much needed funds for cancer research.
