The City has closed the Port Coquitlam Community Centre, Hyde Creek Centre, Terry Fox Library, Outlet and the Gathering Place. Services are also being limited at City Hall and other city facilities to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

As we celebrate 40 years of the Marathon of Hope, we have a new set of challenges to overcome. This year has been particularly difficult, to say the least, but we need you now more than ever!

It’s “Your Way” in 2020

This year, the Run’s theme is “One Day. Your Way.” Due to public health concerns, we will participate in spirit, not in person this year.

On Sunday September 20th, we ask that you continue to support cancer research by participating in and fundraising for your Virtual Run. We leave it up to you to choose how to celebrate your Terry Fox effort – walk, run, dance, hike – on a favourite route and with your favourite people. Most importantly, we need you to honour the day by fundraising for cancer research.

Think Outside the Box

Today, 40 years later, we’re in a year that’s challenging us more than we could have ever expected. We have to think outside the box to make the best of our 2020 participation. We can’t think of anything that Terry would appreciate more.
