The 2014 Terry Fox Run is just around the corner and while some kids may participate each year with their school (School Run Day is September 24th), this year families might need to take it upon themselves to sign up on their own. The general run takes places in hundreds of communities across Canada on Sunday, September 14th in memory of Terry Fox, and keeping with tradition there is no entry fee and no donation minimum to be met.

    Thanks a lot for sharing all those events. Terry Fox Run is going to be affected this year with the teachers’ strike but families can always participate on their own.

    I believe they have their biggest event in PoCo, where Terry Fox is from, but I don’t see it on your list. Might be worth adding!
