About the Terry Fox Foundation:
Terry Fox was a young Canadian who got diagnosed with a rare form of cancer when he was 17. To raise awareness, he ran across Canada but sadly succumbed to the disease at the age of 21. We do this run every year in Mumbai to raise awareness for cancer research amongst children and how important it can be to save lives. When we started the run 20 years ago, 2 out of 10 children benefited from research and went home cancer free. Today 8 out of 10 have benefited from our research and go home cancer free. We are hoping for 10 out of 10 soon!
