Join Darrell Fox in a Run to Promote Physical Activity During WICC 2019

Join Darrell Fox in a Run to Promote Physical Activity during the 2019 World Indigenous Cancer Conference on Thursday, September 19th in Calgary, Alberta.

Darrell Fox, who is Metis, is the younger brother of Terry Fox, for whom the Terry Fox Foundation and the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) are named.  In 1980, at the age of 17, Darrell joined Terry (and Terry’s best friend Doug Alward) on his Marathon of Hope in Saint John, New Brunswick. The Marathon of Hope was a cross-Canada run to raise money for cancer research. Since Terry’s passing in 1981 due to cancer, Darrell has had a long history of involvement with the legacy founded by his brother.

Today Darrell serves on the TFRI’s Board of Directors and is a senior advisor to the Institute. A holder of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, Darrell continues to be involved in projects and activities related to Terry Fox and his legacy.

The Darrell Fox Run will start at 6:15 am at Eau Claire Market, just north of Prince’s Island Park, and take place on the running paths along the Bow River. There will be a 5km run or 1 km walk for delegates to choose from. A map will be provided upon registering,

Registration will take place at WICC so make sure to join this inspirational run and take in the beauty of what Calgary offers.
