“Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue.
It’s got to keep going without me.” Terry Fox
He firmly believed in his vision and made it a mission of the Terry Fox run to allow anyone to run without registering, or having to pay fees or raise minimum amounts.
"When I started this run, I said that if we all gave one dollar, we’d have $22 million for cancer research, and I don’t care man, there’s no reason that isn’t possible. No reason!”
The run has now raised over $500 million and this coming weekend sees the annual Terry Fox Run, now in its 32nd year. Our family have been taking part since my daughter was born and this will be her 10th consecutive run.
Please plan to go out and join in this weekend (or make an online donation) and take a moment to reflect on his vision and consider your own. It does not have to be as inpsiring or have such a lasting impact as his, but it does need to mean something - to YOU.
If being clear on your vision is still something you are struggling with then the 'back to school' personal brand programs that I am running this fall could be just the help you need and more. Check out the various options here - Personal Brand Back to School.
