The largest single day fund raising event for cancer research worldwide, the 12th Terry Fox Run Guangzhou has kicked off at Guangzhou Luhu Golf and Country Club on 6 December, 2014.
On run day, a total of around 4800 participants from both local and expatriate joined us for the walk-run of 2 KM/ 5KM / 10 KM for a non-competitive run. It has successfully raised RMB 647,000 ($ 104,727) from T-shirt sale, Corporate & individuals donations, silent auction items and food concessions. All proceeds will go to a local hospital/research institute by the Terry Fox Research for cancer research.
We feel very excited to continuously organize this annual charity event, which is really successful! With special thanks to those participants, supporters & donators" said Bahram Sepahi, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou. "I believe Terry Fox Run will become even more successful with everyone's joint effort. Our goal is not only to raise more funds for local cancer research, but also to increase public awareness on cancer."
