Terry Fox run raises S$40,000
SINGAPORE: After a five-year absence, the Terry Fox run has made a comeback. About 1,500 participants took part in the run held at the Playground@Big Splash on Sunday morning. And S$40,000 was raised through the sale of tee-shirts and donations. All the proceeds will fund cancer research programmes at the Singapore Cancer Society. The Terry Fox run is named after Canadian amputee runner Terry Fox who attempted to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. To date, close to S$500 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry's name through the annual Terry Fox runs held across Canada and across the world.
