Terry Fox’s dream was to run across Canada, to raise money for cancer research. His goal was to run over 8,000 km from the east coast of Canada to the west coast of Canada. He named his run, The Marathon of Hope and started it on April 12, 1980. He ran for 143 days and was then forced to stop because the cancer returned. Now every year, more than 8,000 schools across Canada hold a Terry Fox Run to help Terry’s dream for a world without cancer come true. Take the time to be a bronco that makes change and set up an online account to help you collect pledges. The Terry Fox run/walk will take place on Tuesday, Sept 26.

All are invited to the Homecoming BBQ in the atrium after the game.  Go Broncos.
