Making cancer history

Terry Fox Foundation keeps runner's legacy alive this Sunday.

This year’s Terry Fox Run takes place Sept. 18.

It is a day of celebrating his legacy and helping to keep alive Fox’s dream of finding a cure for cancer.

Terry Fox Runs take place in more 9,000 communities across Canada.

For 2016, North Delta’s location has changed to the North Delta Recreation Centre (it was formerly Sungod Arena).
