About Us

Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network

The Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network is the realization of a long-standing vision of the Terry Fox Research Institute. Inspired by Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope, the network represents a powerful collaborative platform that aims to close the gap between research in the lab and patient care in the clinic. Just as Terry Fox united Canadians with his run and dream to end cancer, the Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network aims to unite our cancer researchers to pursue that same goal with precision medicine.

  • “When Terry dipped his prosthetic leg in the Atlantic Ocean and set out on his Marathon of Hope, his goal was to raise awareness and money for cancer research so that one day we would be able to find cures for all cancers. The Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network is a huge step in that direction and is something I know Terry would be very proud of.”
