Welcome to the Confederation Bridge - Terry Fox Run home page
On September 18, 2005, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the 'Marathon of Hope', Confederation Bridge, in partnership with the Terry Fox Foundation, staged the single largest Terry Fox Run ever held! 14,000 participants ran or walked the 12.9 km structure, raising $375,000 in Terry's name for cancer research.
The event was heralded as a success on all fronts.
Now, with the 30th anniversary of the 'Marathon of Hope' quickly approaching, Confederation Bridge and the Terry Fox Foundation have once again joined together to stage another record-setting Run.
We invite you to join us on Sunday, September 19, 2010, as we help to continue Terry's legacy and raise funds in the fight against cancer.
Don't miss out!
Here are some of the great advantages of doing the Terry Fox Run on the Confederation Bridge:
- Unique experience of walking / running on the longest bridge over ice covered waters in the world
- Opportunity to obtain event specific pledges. More pledges means more donations to the Terry Fox Foundation
- Inclusion of YOUR NAME in a special commemorative DVD on display at the Visitor Information Centre in Gateway Village, PE, at the foot of Confederation Bridge
