Purshotham, President, Rotary Club of Madras East, “Terry Fox Run is an annual non-competitive charity event held over 600 cities in 53 countries to raise money exclusively for cancer research. Terrance Stanley 'Terry' Fox (July 28, 1958 - June 28, 1981) was a Canadian athlete & cancer activist. He became famous for the ‘Marathon of Hope’, a cross- Canada run to raise money for cancer research, which he himself ran with a prosthetic leg. Millions of supporters across the globe run every year to keep up his legacy to create cancer awareness and raise funds for cancer research.”


Celebrities, well-wishers and supporters will participate in the run. Students from schools & colleges, employees from corporate, banks and private companies interested in cancer awareness will be running for the cause which has now become a landmark event in the calendar of important event taking place in Chennai.
