Terry Fox Walk/Run

Terry Fox Walk/Run

This year marks the 42nd Anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. While the Terry Fox run will look a little different this year, let us all take inspiration from the way Terry rose above the many challenges that met him on the Marathon of Hope and make this year's event a safe, fun, and memorable one.

The Event

This year’s event will take place on Thursday October 6th 2022 (rain or shine).


Online fundraising is the best way. However, students will also receive pledge forms. Simply click HERE to access St. Clare’s school fundraising link.

Students are encouraged to get on board too by setting up their own fundraising page under our school link. Simply follow the instructions on the pledge form.

Fundraising Goal
