Even for enthusiastic runners, 23 miles is a long run. Terry Fox averaged that far every day—for 143 days—as he clocked the 3,339 miles from St. John’s Newfoundland to northern Ontario on his 1980 Marathon of Hope to raise $1 million to fight cancer. So don your running shoes to run a kilometer or two this September in SFU’s annual Terry Fox Walk/Run.

Nello Angerilli, associate vice-president, students and international, invites the entire SFU community to participate in this special event which occurs over three days at three campuses—Surrey: Sunday, Sept. 16, 10 am, Bear Creek Park. Vancouver: Wednesday, Sept. 19, 11:40 am, Harbour Centre. Burnaby: Thursday, Sept. 20, 11:40 am, Convocation Mall. Last year, SFU raised more than $14,000. Worldwide, the Terry Fox Run has raised more than $400 million for cancer research.
