Fredericton Area Students Break Fundraising Record in Support of Cancer Research

Posted on: April 15th, 2020.

In the Fall of 2019, twenty-three schools in Fredericton worked together to pursue Terry Fox’s dream of a world without cancer. Each of the schools registered to take part in the annual Terry Fox School Run and, thanks to the JT Clark Family Foundation, were given a special opportunity to double their impact on the condition that they share an ambitious goal. The challenge was simple – if the schools raised a collective total of $17,500, the Clark Foundation would match with $17,500. This goal was a significant increase in funds raised by the same schools in the previous year, but also represented one of Terry Fox’s defining traits – setting big goals and working hard to achieve them.

With the help of the Fredericton community, these 10,000 students, aged 3-18, achieved this ambitious goal and, including the challenge funds from The JT Clark Family Foundation, raised $40,180!!

These funds will enable The Terry Fox Foundation to fund life-changing cancer research, including the M4 (Multiple Myeloma Molecular Monitoring) Study lead by Dr. Tony Reiman at the University of New Brunswick.
