The International American School in Bucharest (AISB) will host the fifteen edition of the Terry Fox Run on September 5th. It is a charity event, which aims to attract funds for cancer research. The AISB students and their parents and the school’s staff and friends will gather starting 10.00 to start the run on a 5-kilometer tour in the Baneasa forest.

Approximately 1,000 participants run the race and over the last fourteen years over EUR 170,000 have been raised to support the fight against cancer in Romania, with the funding going to various Bucharest hospitals.

The non-competitive Terry Fox Run takes place worldwide yearly and celebrates Canadian cancer activist Terry Fox.
