We are very excited to host Fred Fox, borther of Terry Fox to MVHS on Wednesday, Spetember 13th during period 3. Below is a brief description of Mr. Fox and his message.
As a former Provincial Director of The Terry Fox Foundation in British Columbia, Fred inspired and worked with volunteers from 1994 to 2001 and witnessed first-hand the impact his brother’s legacy had on countless supporters and cancer research. Today, as Manager of Supporter Relations in the TFF National office, Fred is responsible for managing relations and partnerships between Terry’s Family, The Terry Fox Foundation and its stakeholders, including volunteers and donors across Canada.
Fred speaks at schools and community events throughout year to share his personal story about growing up with Terry and some of his memories of his brother’s journey during the 1980 Marathon of Hope. Fred is very passionate in his role at The Terry Fox Foundation and never misses the opportunity to thank the many volunteers that have made the Foundation the success that it is today and who are responsible for keeping Terry’s dream alive for 37 years.
In addition, together with his siblings, Fred works tirelessly to help oversee and protect Terry Fox’s legacy for future generations. Fred is married to wife Theresa and father to their 3 grown children, Terrance, Kirsten & Erin. He is also a proud owner of two golden retrievers, Scout and newest addition Harper.
To date, over $750 million has been raised in Terry’s name. Leading into our thirty-seventh year, these funds made a lasting impact on research thus have fueled much of the advances made in the fight against this disease.
