Today, April 12th 2020, marks the 40th anniversary of the legendary Terry Fox’ Marathon Of Hope. Les Clefs d’Or Canada Concierges are proud to have participated and contributed $244,899.00 to the success of The Terry fox Run for the past 15 years.
Concierges from four regions of Les Clefs d’Or Canada raised $21361 for cancer research and they ran and/or walked up to 10Km as they took part in the 2019 Terry Fox Run.
The Terry Fox Run is a National event for Les Clefs d’Or Canada and it is one of the most reputable charities in Canada. The Concierges have participated for 15 years in a row now and have raised a total of $244,899!
Our 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility event transformed into a Hawaiian dance party thanks to the Heremana Polynesian Dancers who donated their time to welcome guests with live hula dancing and interactive performances throughout the evening aboard Harbour Cruises vessel the MV Britannia.
This year we are celebrating the 38th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope. This event reminds us, as Terry Fox once said, “The importance of realizing that anything is possible, if you try. Dreams are made if people try.”Terry Fox battled cancer at the age of 18 years old. His dream was to raise $1 000 000 for cancer research and as he fought for his life at the age of 22, he earned many awards and was able to raise more than $10 000 000 in a special telethon. As per the official site $700,000,000 has been raised in Terry’s name for cancer research.
Fort Calgary was the start and end of the “Marathon of Hope”. People could be seen coming from everywhere. Everyone enjoyed the cheerful atmosphere being entertained by stretching, activities, music and complimentary coffee from our friends at Tim Hortons.
