The Terry Fox Run is an annual non-competitive charity event held in numerous regions around the world in commemoration of Canadian cancer activist Terry Fox, and his Marathon of Hope, and to raise money for cancer research.

The yearly run is a must-attend on the calendars of families, sports enthusiasts, philanthropists and UAE residents. The run fuels charitable donations for local cancer research and commemorates the indelible mark that Terry Fox left on his fight against cancer.
