Terry Fox | Terry Fox Run


Thanks for Your Support!

terryfoxYesterday, I participated in the Terry Fox Run. I'd say I ran it, but that would be a lie. I walked it.

I hit you all up pretty hard for The Ride to Conquer Cancer, so you're excused for not pledging my Terry Fox Run this year. In fact, my expectations were pretty low, and you blew them away.

We raised $260 and I really appreciate your support. Here are my 2014 Terry Fox Run pledgers.

Terry Ran a Marathon a Day on One Leg, You Can Wake Up Early on Sunday

terryfoxNext Sunday is the Terry Fox Run. I'll be at High Park for 9am, and that means my kids will be there.

My oldest son is 12 going on 17. When I wake him up on a weekend before noon, he deems it cruel and unusual punishment. You should have seen the look on his face when I told him we were going to be in High Park at 9am next Sunday.

I looked my sweet boy in the eyes, reminded him that Terry Fox ran a marathon a day on one leg, and told him he can get up at 8am next Sunday. He didn't complain again.

Thanks to all who have pledged my run thus far. If you can spare a dime or two, I am collecting pledges here.

Here's my soon-to-be teenager six years ago.

The 2014 Terry Fox Run

terryfoxWhen raising money for The Ride to Conquer Cancer earlier this year, I'm sure I promised not to hit you up for donations to my Terry Fox Run this year. At the time, I was concerned with donation fatigue. It's tough to beg for money and then do it again a few months later.

Then I re-watched Steve Nash's documentary about Terry Fox, Into the Wind, and realized I owe it to Terry to promote my run, even if I drained the swamp earlier this year. I will be participating in the Terry Fox Run on September 14 and I am collecting pledges here.

Please give what you can, and if you haven't seen Into the Wind yet, I found it on YouTube. Here's part one:
