The Terry Fox Run returns to the Capital on Friday, 19 January 2018. The yearly run is a must-attend on the calendars of families, sport enthusiasts, philanthropists and UAE residents. The run fuels charitable donations for local cancer research and commemorates the indelible mark that Terry Fox left on his fight against cancer. The last Run had people and schools participate by running, walking and wheeling along an 8.5KM track on the Abu Dhabi Corniche. Since 1981 the Terry Fox Run has contributed significantly towards supporting innovative cancer research and has also created a culture of social responsibility in the UAE.
