At 18 years of age, Canadian Terry Fox learned that due to bone cancer his right leg would be amputated above the knee. He became convinced that a cure for cancer could be found through cancer research, and decided to run 6,000 miles across Canada to raise awareness and funds that would help develop a cure. Terry called it his "Marathon of Hope" and he would run 26 miles a day for 143 consecutive days before the cancer spread to his lungs and was forced to stop short of his goal. Sadly, less than an year later Terry Fox died, one month shy of his 23rd birthday. 

Since his death, thousands of runs have been held in Canada and throughout the world in Terry's name to raise funds for cancer research. Help us continue and celebrate Terry's legacy with the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research (New York).

Availor Philanthropy invites everyone to join us in helping to raise awareness and funds for cancer research by running with us on October 13 in Central Park!
