Beaver Brae Secondary School has finalized the numbers. The 2017 Terry Fox School Run raised $1,448.30 towards cancer research in Terry’s name. The school says that the 2017 run was a great success.

The Terry Fox Foundation extended a heartfelt thank you to the school.

“With open hearts and big dreams, your school sets a shining example of what can be accomplished with a focused goal and incredible school spirit. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to keep Terry’s dream alive!,” they said.

In 2016 alone, Ontario schools raised more than $5 million for cancer research. To date, over $750 million has been raised in Terry’s name. 

Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope in St. John's Newfoundland on April 12, 1980. He was forced to stop his run outside of Thunder Bay when doctors found cancer in his lungs. He died on June 28, 1981 when he was 22 years old.
