SSIS Supports the HCMC Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research

This Sunday, November 29th, the 19th annual HCMC Terry Fox Run will take place in PMH. The run begins at 8AM on Tan Trao Street (in front of Vina Milk Tower – near Capri and Ibis Hotels). Registration and t-shirt sales will take place this week before and after school in the plaza. In keeping with Terry Fox’s dream, there is no required/minimum donation to participate in the run. Simply donate as you wish. Terry Fox Run t-shirts ranging in size from 3XS – 3XL are available for 200,000 vnd each. Many sizes run out, so be sure to buy your shirt early.
SSIS has long been a strong supporter of the HCMC Terry Fox Run as participants, volunteers and in the funds we raise for cancer research.
This year the HS students have organized a special fundraiser called the Wall of Hope. Make a donation to receive paper heart, then write a dedication on the heart to someone you know who has fought cancer. Hearts will be sold and on display in the plaza before and after school all week; all monies donated will go to the Terry Fox Run.
The HCMC Terry Fox Run has quickly become one of the biggest Terry Fox Runs outside of Canada. Last year it was the3rd biggest in the world outside of Canada. All money raised by the HCMC Terry Fox Run stays in VN; so far, the money raised has paid for a new wing in the oncology hospital, purchased new/up-to-date equipment needed for cancer treatment and offered further training to doctors. It really is phenomenal to see the difference that the funds raised have made for thousands of people in Vietnam.
