“I thank the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award Program for helping me through the last four years. I will be the first person in my family to receive a university degree, and I thank the TFHAP for helping me achieve this honour.” Heather Mahal, Terry Fox Scholar.
For over thirty years, the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award Program has helped hundreds of exemplary young Canadians pursue their dreams of making the world a better place. Some dream of eradicating polio or cancer, of becoming doctors or nurses – others strive to be teachers, social workers, or advocates for the poor and disadvantaged. Although their paths differ, all have dedicated their time and energy to helping others. Like Terry, all demonstrated extraordinary courage, humanitarianism, and compassion in the process.
For many of these students though, their dreams would not have been made possible without the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award. It was this $28,000 scholarship that allowed them to pursue higher education and continue their humanitarian work.
When you donate today, you are not simply giving to a scholarship. You are making someone’s dream of alleviating human suffering and improving the human condition a reality and are empowering them to make a difference in the lives of many others.
