Terry Fox Run/Walk 2019

By Matthew Reid

The Terry Fox Story

I'm organising an event to raise funds for The Children's Hospital at Westmead in the name of Terry Fox

The Terry Fox Run is a 3, 5, 10 km km non-competitive walk/run raising money for the Children's Hospital Westmead. It’s about raising awareness of the great achievements of Terry Fox and also for the community to get together and participate and have fun. Have a cup of coffee and walk around Meadowbank with our fellow city of Ryde residents, and be a part of something special. This event is about inspiring our kids.

Please make a kind donation, and I will send you your walking bibs.
Kids will be free with two donating adults.

In 1978 Terry Fox was diagnosed with cancer and his right leg had to be amputated. In 1980 he ran 5,373 kms on one leg to raise money for cancer research. Unfortunately the cancer returned, so he could not complete the entire course he set out to do. He is a legend and a great role model for our kids.

He and the foundation that was set up after his death has raised $750 million to date.

FAQs

- Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No

- What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Meadowbank train station is very close and there is ample parking in the car park.

- How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

The Children's Hospital at Westmead is one of Australia's leading specialist medical centres for children, offering a safe and friendly healing environment for kids from NSW and beyond. The Hospital's expert medical staff care for more than 84,000 critically ill and injured children every year.

That’s why I’ve chosen to raise much needed funds for The Children's Hospital at Westmead.
