While battling cancer, Terry Fox ran his marathon across Canada, only to stop in Thunder Bay on September 1st, 198 5. Every year the Notre Dame community continues Terry’s legacy by spreading awareness and raising funds to support cancer research as well as to carry on Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.

Terry Running the Marathon of Hope.

This year marks Notre Dame’s 20th Terry Fox Day where students come together to follow in Terry’s footsteps and as a community, we raised $5243 for cancer research in the hopes that one day we can live in a world without cancer.

"I want to set an example that will never be forgotten" -Terry Fox

Together we are able to make a difference and keep Terry’s dream of a cancer-free world alive.
