Ontario Celebrating the Legacy of Terry Fox

Province encourages local participation in the 2021 Terry Fox Run

Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility


TORONTO — Today, Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility, issued the following statement:

“Every September Ontarians remember the amazing courage of Terry Fox, and continue his fight against cancer.

Terry’s Marathon of Hope has provided inspiration for over 40 years. He taught us all that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and others.

His bravery and determination continue to be an inspiration for people with disabilities across Ontario and around the world. His hopes and dreams live on through the Terry Fox Foundation and its annual Terry Fox Run.

Terry Fox once said, ‘Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going.’

I encourage everyone to celebrate Terry’s legacy again on Sunday, September 19, by participating in a local Terry Fox run, sponsoring an individual or team, or volunteering to help.

Please visit and register as an individual, family or team and start your fundraising effort.

Together, we can carry on Terry’s legacy and support his belief that dreams are made possible if you try.”
