Our Campaign Story

ends 17 Feb 2017, 11:59 PM

On April 20, 1980, Terrance "Terry" Stanley Fox embarked on a cross-country run of Canada to raise money and awareness for cancer research. With one leg amputated, Terry ran a total of 5373 km over a course of 143 days. When Terry Fox passed away partway through his run, he left behind a lasting, worldwide legacy. Today, children all over Canada and the rest of the world take part in annual walks and runs to carry Terry's legacy and continue to raise awareness and funds to help with the fight against cancer.

Students from the Canadian International School will soon be walking and running for up to 40 minutes in our annual Terry Fox Run. Our awareness campaign includes raising funds to support the Singapore Cancer Society. Students are asked to seek pledges from family and friends, both locally and abroad, and to begin collecting these today. You can show your financial support to the Singapore Cancer Society by donating online now!
