Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – WEBWIRE

Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur

will be hosting its 2nd official Terry Fox Fun Run in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, August 11, 2024, at 7:00 am. The Hotel invites runners, joggers and walkers of all ages to join the run in support of Cancer Research Malaysia.

Everyone is welcome to take part and can complete the 5-kilometre run following DBKL’s Sunday car-free route at their own pace. Participants and onlookers alike can buy a Terry Fox Run t-shirt via the Hotel website: 100 percent of the funds raised will go to Cancer Research Malaysia.

The history of the Terry Fox Run goes back to 1980, when 22-year-old Terry Fox, who lost his leg to bone cancer, ran 5,374 kilometres across Canada to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Through rain, snow and heat, he continued his Marathon of Hope until he was forced to stop because cancer appeared in his lungs. He passed away the following year, but not before raising CAD 24 million for the cause.

Inspired by Terry’s courage and vision of a cancer-free world, Four Seasons founder Isadore Sharp made a commitment to upholding Terry’s legacy. He worked closely with several sponsors to organize the first-ever Terry Fox Run in 1981, drawing more than 300,000 participants. Today, more than 12,000 Terry Fox Memorial Runs take place around the world annually, supported by Four Seasons in several locations.

“Our Hotel team is thrilled to host this event for the 2nd time to honour Terry’s inspiring legacy,” says General Manager Blaise Montandon. “It is a privilege for us to support our local community by raising funds for Cancer Research Malaysia. During last year’s run, which was held on May 7, 2023, we raised more than MYR 45,000.00. Hopefully, with your support, we can improve the previous amount raised. Hope to see you all on August 11, 2024 at 7:00 am at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur for the exciting run"

The Terry Fox Run will begin at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Many Hotel employees will also be participating in the event. There will be prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd runner in 3 categories, namely the male category, female category and children’s category.
