The Terry Fox Run

Queen's University Alumni Association - NYC

We're raising money the Terry Fox Run for cancer research in New York City.

Calling all Queen's alumni in NYC! Join us on Saturday, October 13th as we participate in the 2018 New York City Terry Fox Run in Central Park. The five kilometer family fun run/walk is an annual event supporting cancer research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre in New York. We will have a meeting spot to convene before the race, which we encourage all participants to come to, as we will be taking a team photo and those present will be entered to win some door prizes! We will confirm the meeting area closer to race day. Please help us fundraise for a great cause and join us on the day.

Please sign up to join our Queen's University Alumni team and donate through our page. We had a great group of alumni participate in this event last year. We welcome both past and new runners. We look forward to seeing everyone running in their tricolour gear again this year! Cha Gheill! 

100% of every dollar you give supports new research directed by Dr. Renier Brentjens at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Dr. Brentjens’ lab focuses on immunotherapy research to treat acute and chronic leukemias.

"No matter how promising the research or how inspired the scientists, nothing can happen without the resources to fund the work. We now have many reasons to feel hopeful about using T cells in the treatment of many kinds of cancer, and we wouldn't be where we are without the support from organizations like The Terry Fox Run." ~ Dr. Renier Brentjens

Cancer touches too many lives and hits too close to home, so we are doing what we can to stop this terrible disease. We are committed to raising money to help fund Dr. Brentjens’ research at MSK, and need your help. Please make any size donation to join us in this fight!

None of Dr. Brentjens’ research would have been possible without the resources from donors like you. Since the Terry Fox Run for cancer research in New York City began more than two decades ago, over $3 million has been raised. Just a reminder: 100% of your gift goes to research. Be a part of the fight in ending cancer, donate today!
