UTSC to host new event in honour of Terry Fox’s legacy for cancer research


The University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) will host an inaugural event Oct. 3 to honour Canadian hero Terry Fox and to support his 32-year legacy of raising funds for cancer research.

The inaugural Terry’s Cause on Campus (TCC) will unite university students across Canada in a series of events held at university campuses during September and early October.

The cross-Canada event is being launched by the Terry Fox Foundation (TFF) and the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) in partnership with a founding group of universities including the University of Toronto, Carleton University, Dalhousie University, McMaster University, Memorial University, Queen’s University, Simon Fraser University, and the University of Calgary.

All funds raised will go to TFF for investment in cancer research by TFRI.

Students from the University of Toronto will participate for the first time in a run that will bring together all three campus locations to UTSC in support of the Terry Fox Foundation.  For more information, visit www.terryfox.org/terryscauseoncampus or www.facebook.com/terryscause. Students can register online at www.terryfox.org/terryscauseoncampus.

If you would like to volunteer or participate in the FCC event at UTSC contact Scott McRoberts, director of athletics and recreation, at smcroberts@utsc.utoronto.ca or (416) 287-7093.
