KUALA LUMPUR, 4 November 2014 – Over 6,000 Malaysians from all walks of life came together at the Terry Fox Run 2014 in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa recently to show their commitment and support for cancer research.
This year’s run was flagged off at 8am by HE Judith St. George, High Commissioner for Canada, with individuals walking, running, cycling and skating around the scenic 2 km Family and 4 km Standard routes.
“We would like to express our utmost gratitude to the Malaysian public for the continuous support to the Terry Fox Run and their generous donations this year. It is really heartening to see the whole community come together to fight for the same cause that Terry believed in,” said Jo Tan, Chairman of the Terry Fox Run KL 2014 organising committee.
The Terry Fox Run is the largest single day fundraiser for cancer research in the world and is celebrated in honour of Terry Fox, a young Canadian and cancer patient who began the ‘Marathon of Hope’ – his inspiring journey to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. With one leg amputated, Terry Fox became a national hero running for 143 days, completing 5,373 km before he passed away in 1981.
The Terry Fox Foundation was established that year to continue his legacy by hosting a run the same time every year. Since then, the Terry Fox Run has been held in over 50 countries throughout the world and has raised more than RM 1.3 billion in aid of finding a cure for cancer through the Terry Fox Foundation.
To date, the Terry Fox Run has raised more than RM 1 million for cancer research in Malaysia since its first run in 2001. Last year, the event attracted more than 6,000 participants and raised RM 260,921. This year, more than 12,000 exclusive Terry Fox Run 2014 T-shirts were sold before the run, and the proceeds of the T-shirts sales will be channeled to CARIF, the beneficiary of this year’s run.
The Terry Fox Foundation has also embraced the role cancer survivors play in the annual Terry Fox Run. Known as Terry’s Team Members, they continue to be symbols of hope for others who are stricken with cancer and undergoing the hardships of cancer treatment. Most importantly, they serve as a reminder of the legacy Terry Fox left behind, to be the voice for cancer research for the world over.
This year, the Terry Fox Run KL once again welcomed all cancer survivors to sign up as Terry’s Team Members. 100 exclusive Terry’s Team T-shirts were handed out to these participants identifying them as special members of the Terry Fox Run KL.
“We, at CARIF, are once again delighted to be working with Terry Fox Run in support of cancer research in Malaysia. On behalf of CARIF, I would like to thank the Terry Fox Run 2014 organising committee participants, volunteers and donors for their dedication to carry Terry Fox’s legacy to seek a cure for cancer. We are touched by the support that we have received and are motivated to go even further with cancer research in Malaysia,” said Prof. Dr Teo Soo-Hwang, Chief Executive, CARIF.
