Terry Fox Run 2005
What is the Terry Fox Run ? The Terry Fox Run (a fun run with most participants walking), spearheaded worldwide by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, is an event dedicated to raising funds for cancer research. In Singapore, the event is the single largest fund raising effort in aid of the Singapore Cancer Society. The Singapore Cancer Society which is a self-funding voluntary welfare organization views cancer research as a vital aspect in its move towards total cancer control, treatment and care.
Inspired by the Terry Fox Dream! Among the millions inspired by Terry’s “Marathon of Hope” was Isadore Sharp, Chairman of Four Seasons Hotels. While Terry was in the hospital receiving treatment, Mr . Sharp sent a telegram containing the promise that we “will not rest until your dream to find a cure for cancer is realized”. Mr. Sharp also committed his effort to an annual Terry Fox Run as a fundraising event for cancer research.
