Join us for the Oxford Cup in Support of the Terry Fox Run

This fall, Trinity College School is combining two beloved traditions – the 124th running of the Oxford Cup and the Terry Fox Run – to be held on Friday, September 20th at 2:30 p.m. Alumni, parents and friends are invited to join Junior and Senior School students and staff for this special event and/or to donate in support of cancer research.

Want to run/walk with us?
If you would like to lace up your running shoes and join our students and staff on the 5km Hedney-Geale Trail, online registration is now available at www.tcs.on.ca/oxfordcup (select “Oxford Cup/Terry Fox Run” from the drop-down menu). You are strongly encouraged to register in advance, and all guests must come to Cirne Commons between 1:00 and 2:15 p.m. to receive a race number. As in the past, there will be awards presented in various categories following the conclusion of the run.

Want to donate?
TCS students have long been inspired by Terry Fox’s dream of a world without cancer. Trinity College School is within the top 20 schools in the province in terms of funds raised, and this year we are aiming even higher! Donate online at www.terryfox.ca/TrinityCollegePortHope (you can indicate a student’s name and house affiliation so totals for the house competition can be tracked).

Why are these two events joining forces?
As announced in June, the School made the decision to combine the two events – now to be known as the Oxford Cup in Support of the Terry Fox Run – after much consideration. Some factors included: encouraging further student participation, more closely aligning with the traditional cross country running season, helping ensure better weather conditions for our runners, as well as better supporting the Terry Fox Run.

When cancer forced Terry Fox to end his Marathon of Hope on September 1, 1980, he had covered 3,339 miles in 143 days. He said, “Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.” Now, 39 years later, we invite you to join us as we continue Terry’s mission as well as celebrate the School's historic Oxford Cup.
