Run, Walk, Wheel, Ride @ Terry Fox Run 2010

Yes, it's time to take your running shoes out of the box (or from under the bed!) and dust them off for this year's Terry Fox Run which will be held at Titiwangsa Lake KL on Sunday, 7th November. This year is marks the 30th anniversary of the 5km charity run and the fun part about this is, that you don't have to run. You can walk, cycle, roller-blade, wheel prams or heck, even salsa your way through the course!


The run itself is free. There are no registration fees. However, proceeds from the t-shirt sales go to the Cancer Research Iniatives Foundation (CARIF). So if you'd like (but you're not obliged to), you could buy a t-shirt (RM25 each) and/or make additional donations to the cause. Of if you have a Terry Fox Run t-shirt from previous years, you could wear that too :)

Check out this year's design!

A brief insight:

The Terry Fox Run is an annual non-competitive charity event held in numerous regions around the world in commemoration of Canadian cancer activist Terry Fox, and his Marathon of Hope, and to raise money for cancer research and awareness.
So to recap...

Date: 7th November 2010 (Sunday)
Venue: Lake Titiwangsa, KL
Time: 9am (participants are required to be there by 8.45am)
T-Shirts: RM25 each (can be obtained on the day of the race)
Route Distance: 5km

No Registration Fee!

I participated in the 2008 run but could not make it for last year's run due to unforceen circumstances. So I'm very determined to make it this year especially since it's for a good cause. Every year the response seems to get better and better though. Malaysian celebrity, Yasmin Yusoff would probably be the MC (as she has been for the last few years). And according to some websites I read, there would be entertainment and light refreshments served (Milo truck!).

So block 7th November on your HTC, iPhone (or paper calendar!) and make your way down to Titiwangsa Lake, KL to help raise awareness for cancer research!

Nick Phillips: Hehehe. That's great! If I see someone whizzing by me on the route, I'd know it's you (or wifey!).
