Terry Fox Run
Support Cancer
Research Today!

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


CIS is committed to supporting the Terry Fox Foundation and creating awareness for cancer research. We aim to provide an early and positive experience for children and adults alike by supporting the cause and growing towards a cancer-free world.


CIS has been organizing and hosting the Terry Fox Run for the past 11 years. We have successfully hosted thousands of participants year after year on campus for the run. We have collectively raised over INR 15 lakhs and have donated to various local organizations in India through the Terry Fox Foundation.
