The Terry Fox Run is an annual, non-competitive 6.5 km walk/run in honour of Canadian cancer activist Terry Fox to raise money for the Children’s Medical Research Institute. It’s about raising awareness of the great achievements of Terry Fox and also for the community to get together and participate and have fun.
This years’ 6.5km Terry Fox run/walk will be on the 25th of November at Meadowbank Park, Meadowbank, starting at 8am.
Have a cup of coffee and walk around Meadowbank with our fellow City of Ryde residents and be a part of something special. This event is about inspiring our kids and is a great opportunity to raise money for cancer by asking friends and family to support you.
Kids are free with two paying adults.
