Terry Fox was an inspirational Canadian who lost his leg to cancer and attempted to run across Canada to raise awareness of cancer. The spirit of his Marathon of Hope continues today in Terry Fox Runs in Canada and around the world.
The Terry Fox Run Vietnam is the 3rd largest Terry Fox Run in the world and had more than 16,000 participants in 2015, raising more than 2,3000,000 VND for Cancer research! All funds raised stay in Vietnam for cancer research.
2016 is the 20th anniversary of the Terry Fox Run Vietnam. It is a non-competitive event for participants to run, walk, wheel, or ride 5 km in the spirit of Terry Fox to raise cancer awareness.
