I am keen to join the Terry Fox Run (charitable organisation for cancer research) which will be held on Sunday, 26 Sept 2004 at 7am onwards in the Lake Gardens. This is organised by the Canadian Embassy and the Terry Fox Foundation. All you have to do to join in the run to purchase a T-Shirt at RM30.00 for adults , RM20 for students from the lobby of the Regent Hotel, KL (opposite KL Plaza) and show up at the Lake Gardens at the appointed time (take the Jalan Parliament entrance and follow the signboards). But the BEST news is that we can all BRING OUR FURKIDS FOR THE RUN!!!! (5km) around the Lake Gardens. I heard this announcement over the radio yesterday and I called up the organisers today and it is confirmed. You can either run, jog, walk, cycle, rollerblade, use a wheelchair for the run. The run is non-competitive so no prizes will be given. Event should end around 11am.
To millions around the world, Terry Fox is synonymous with courage and determination. Despite passing away 23 years ago, his legacy lives on. The world remembers the young man's attempt in running across Canada - with an artificial leg - to raise funds for cancer research. This year's run (9th year in Malaysia) hopes to raise RM100,000 for the Cancer Research Initiatives Foundation. You can read about Terry Fox at www.terryfoxrun.org
Food will also be served after the run. If you need more info, call 2149 4155 or 2718 3333 and ask for Amelie/Izam.
Anyone who is keen to attend, would be much obliged if you could put your name down here. But please go and purchase your own t-shirt ok? .. looking forward to meeting you at the run.
