BC Place glows red in honour of Terry Fox

September 15th, 2019

BC Place will glow red in honour of Terry Fox's legacy as thousands of Canadians take part in Terry Fox Runs across the country on Sunday, September 15th.

In 1980, Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope inspired the country and launched the annual The Terry Fox Run in his honour. Now in its fourth decade, the event continues to motivate people across the country and around the world, raising funds for The Terry Fox Foundation, a leading national investor in cancer research.
