Expo 2020 Dubai to Turn Into a Marathon Track for Terry Fox Run

This Saturday (February 5) the Terry Fox Run will takes place at Expo 2020 Dubai. The World’s Greatest Show location will be transformed into a marathon running track.

The Terry Fox Foundation has raised more than Dh8 million for cancer research in the UAE since the first Run was conducted in 1994, officials said. The event is set to mark World Cancer day at Expo 2020

This year’s run in Dubai continues its tradition as a 3km or 5km non-competitive family fun run.

Registration fees for the run is Dh100 per person, and children up to 17 years old get free entry. All participants will receive three Expo 2020 entry tickets allowing full access to the Expo site. All net proceeds from registrations will be donated to Al Jalila Foundation to support cancer research in the UAE, in partnership with the Terry Fox Foundation.

There are two ways to participate in the Dubai Terry Fox Run: in person at Expo 2020 Dubai or virtually through the website www,dubaiterryfoxrun.org

Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Managing Director of Expo 2020 Dubai, said the Terry Fox Run aims to inspire collective action against a leading cause of death worldwide.

“While cancer does not discriminate, treating it remains a challenging and difficult journey for so many. The UAE remains committed to advancing medical research and innovation to improve quality of life for all, and we are grateful to the Terry Fox Foundation for contributing to this important research.”
