Run For Hope 2007

Run for Hope 2007 is inspired by the courageous story of Terry Fox, a Canadian teenager, who despite an amputated leg due to bone cancer, ran a ‘marathon of hope’ across Canada to raise funds for cancer research, so that one day a cure could be found. Terry ran an equivalent of one entire marathon a day (42 km) for 143 days.

When he was a little more than half way across the country, he was forced to stop running because cancer had spread to the rest of his body. Terry Fox passed away in 1981, at the age of 22.

We will not stop until a cure for all cancers have been found. Join us on this fun filled day to raise awareness and funds for Singapore Cancer Research.

RUN FOR HOPE 2007 is a great way to keep fit and healthy or a good excuse for a day out at the beach. Make it an occasion for company team building, family bonding or just simply fun with friends. Bring family, friends, sports and business colleagues and JOIN IN THE RUN!!

Test your skill with the 8 KM Competitive Race or join the 4 KM Fun Run where you can walk, ride a wheelchair, or push the pram – all for a good cause.
