A run that brings individuals together in many parts of the world- Mumbai can be proud about the results of working together, with no barriers or frontiers for the benefit of all. Mumbai’s determination to fight cancer has made it into the top 3 cities of the world for giving generously towards fight cancer research through the Terry Fox Run.

Born in Canada, Terry Fox was an active teenager involved in many sports. He was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and had to have his right leg amputated above the knee. While in hospital, he witnessed the suffering of other cancer patients, many of them young children. This made him decide to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He called his journey the Marathon of Hope. Terry inspired a nation in 1980 and today continues to do so worldwide . He died soon after but an annual event came into existence to commemorate his efforts known as The Terry Fox Run. Each year, thousands of volunteers organize Terry Fox Run events in Canada and around the world.

and several more for the Run. This year will be the sixteenth year since Mumbai began the run for cancer.

The Oberoi, Mumbai have once again partnered as pioneer supporters to take this event forward in Mumbai under the leadership of Gul Kripalani, the convenor of Terry Fox India Committee.

All the funds collected are donated to Tata Memorial Hospital to carry research of cancer amongst children. Doctors at Tata Memorial Hospital are in contact with the Terry Fox Foundation in Canada as they continue their research.

Other Key Partners are the thousands of school children who come out early morning for the Run to support the cause.

Judith Fox-Alder, sister of Terry Fox says she marvels at how much the annual run has been able to do for cancer research, and how much it continues to do. The Run in India is now the second biggest Run in the world! “We hope this year that the record will be broken in terms of the number of participants and in terms of money collected though the support of our supporters and schools,” says Mr. Kripalani.

“We have over 34 countries that are doing Terry Fox Runs now,” said Fox-Alder, “It’s quite amazing that Terry 34 years ago did his Marathon of Hope and captured a nation, and now he has captured the hearts of people all over the world. It is hard to describe what it means to be Terry Fox’s sister. I don’t even think we can explain the pride that we feel. Terry was an extraordinary person, and the fact that we were born into this family is just a miracle in itself.”
