The Terry Fox Legacy

Terry Fox Marathon of HopeIn 1980, Terry embarked on a journey that inspired millions; his Marathon of Hope. With only one leg Terry began his cross-Canada 5,373-km marathon, with the sole goal of raising money and awareness for cancer research. Since then more than $700-million has been raised in his name, funding the most promising and innovative cancer research in Canada. 

Every year, millions of people participate in Terry Fox Runs throughout 60 different countries.  Participants can run, walk, blade or bike and most of all, have fun while raising funds for cancer research. 

Our Commitment 

Our staff has participated in the Terry Fox Run since 2004 and together we have raised over $23,000 for this remarkable foundation.  The Terry Fox Run has become a tradition that we value and support each year, in honour of everyone we know that has faced this challenging disease.

Terry’s dream of finding a cure for cancer is something we can all relate to and we are proud to know that the fundraising we do is contributing to this vital research.

Our Pledge

Youngs Insurance pledges to continue our yearly support of the Terry Fox Run and we encourage our customers, friends, and family, to participate with us.  It’s a fun day for a great cause! If you are interested in sponsoring, partaking or contributing in any way, please visit
