Manager of Supporter Relations
The Terry Fox Foundation
Chilliwack, British Columbia
As provincial director of The Terry Fox Foundation in British Columbia, Fred worked with and inspired volunteers from 1994 to 2001. He witnessed firsthand the impact of his brother's legacy on cancer researchers and the foundation's countless supporters. As manager of supporter relations today, Fred is responsible for relations between Terry's Family and The Terry Fox Foundation with volunteers and donors across the nation.
Fred speaks at schools and community events throughout year to share his personal story about growing up with Terry and some of his memories of his brother's journey during the 1980 Marathon of Hope. Fred is very passionate about his role at The Terry Fox Foundation and never misses the opportunity to thank the many volunteers that have made the Foundation the success that it is now. Fred will be the first to say that volunteers are the ones responsible for keeping Terry's dream alive for 30 years.
To date, an astounding $500 million has been raised in Terry's name. These funds made an indelible impact on research and have helped fuel advances in the fight against cancer.
