Canadian International School Hosts Terry Fox Run
In memory of a hero who fought cancer and inspired others along the way; proceeds from the event will be sent to the Terry Fox Foundation
The 12th annual Terry Fox Run 2022 was organised by the Canadian International School (CIS), Bangalore, in association with Terry Fox Foundation, Bangalore and Cytecare Cancer Hospitals to support cancer research.
The run started at the CIS campus and after a 5k loop around the neighbourhood and Yelahanka lake, concluded at CIS again. Participants walked, jogged and ran at their own pace. The event saw over 500 participants that included students, teachers, parents from schools across Bangalore, fitness enthusiasts, runners and walkers across the city.
To support the noble cause and help find a cure for cancer, participants purchased a TFR T-shirt for the run or donated online. Canadian International School raised over Rs 1.5 lakh from this year’s event. Overall, the school has collectively raised over Rs 15 lakh from all events and has contributed this amount to various local organisations in India through the Terry Fox Foundation.
