Inspired by a dream, grounded in tradition, volunteer-driven, this will be the 32nd anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.

In the seven years that Sylvan Lake has participated in the event, a total of $20,596.61 has been raised, according to Rhonda Risebrough, provincial director of the Terry Fox Foundation. To date the Terry Fox Foundation has raised over $600 million for cancer research.
