Terry Fox India, Convener Gul Kripalani said, “Last year we raised over Rs 2 crore and this year we expect to raise about 6 crore for this cause. We are the largest contributor for the cancer research. Our key partners are those thousands of school children who come out early morning on a Sunday for the Run to support the cause. All the funds collected are donated to Tata Memorial Hospital to carry out Research in Cancer amongst children. Doctors at Tata Memorial Hospital are in contact with the Terry Fox Foundation in Canada as they continue their research.”

The Run is a non-competitive event where school students and individuals from all walks of life participate and raise money in Terry Fox’s name. It is a day of celebrating Terry’s legacy and helping to keep his dream of a cure for cancer alive. Mumbai can be proud about the results of working together, with no barriers or frontiers for the benefit of all. Mumbai’s determination to fight cancer has made it into the top 3 cities of the world for giving generously towards cancer research through the Terry Fox Run, also known as the Marathon of Hope.

Every year Terry Fox (India) Committee organizes a Run along with The Oberoi, Mumbai to garner support for research in the cancer amongst children. The Committee has supported the Tata Memorial Hospital for 17 years now collecting funds for Research in Cancer amongst children.
