 Proclamation
Terry Fox Day - September 24, 2004
Regional Council proclaimed September 24, 2004 as Terry Fox Day in the Region of Peel.

The "Marathon of Hope" was a personal crusade started by Terry Fox on April 12, 1980 to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Terry's run was cut short when he died of cancer in 1981 at the age of 22.

To commemorate the 24th Anniversary of Terry's "Marathon of Hope", all schools in the Region of Peel are proud to be involved in the Peel Pilot Project in preparation for the 25th Anniversary in 2005, and will participate in a one-day, unified, student-led event on Friday, September 24, 2004. It is the first of its kind to be held in Canada. To date, close to $350 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry's name.
