This year marks the 39th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope as the country honours his legacy by raising money for cancer research.
Montreal’s official event will be ran at throughout the Old Port’s Marché des Éclusiers and Terry’s brother, Darrell Fox, will be in attendance as the guest of honour.

The non-competitive fun run invites individuals, families, and groups to walk or run from 1 to 10 km to raise funds for cancer.
“The course will be a 5 km route from one end of the port to the other, along the promenade as well as along the piers, then back to the start point,” reads the Terry Fox Run website.
Participants are encouraged to run, walk, or wheel but no bikes or rollerblades will be allowed on the circuit.
Every year Terry Fox Runs are held in over 9,000 communities across Canada with the goal of raising funds for cancer research. The Terry Fox Foundations works directly with The Terry Fox Research Institute striving for the best outcomes for cancer patients.
