The Terry Fox Run Is Virtual No More

September 6, 2022

For the first time since 2019, the 42nd Annual Terry Fox Run will be held in person on Sunday, September 18, 2022! For the past two years, the run has taken place virtually, with participants encouraged to participate independently due to COVID-19. In September, we’ll all get to run as a collective, either with our local community or at school. And this year participation is at an all-time high, with more than 560 communities and approximately 4 million Canadians nationwide expected to come together to once again embody Terry’s perseverance and “no quit” attitude! We chatted with Terry’s brother, Fred Fox, to find out more about this year’s run. —Vita Daily
