Registration instructions for new process

As in year's past, fundraising and registration steps will be done on the same website:

When you register online by following the steps below to "Join an existing team" or to "Captain your own team" you'll be given the option to create a fundraising web page that you can share with others. The total you raise will automatically go towards your team's total, if you signed up to join a team.

To date, The Terry Fox Foundation has raised over 700 million dollars towards cancer research. For more information, please visit the websites for The Terry Fox Foundation and  Terry Fox Research Institute.
