This year’s race is will mark the 40th Anniversary of this race in Washington, DC and our 20th year partnership with MedStar Washington Hospital Center Washington Cancer Institute. 

The commitment of Four Seasons to cancer research began in 1980, when Isadore Sharp personally pledged to support Terry Fox’s historic Marathon of Hope and wrote to 999 other Canadian executives urging them to join in support of cancer research. The following year, Four Seasons organized the first ever Terry Fox Run in support of cancer research, in his memory.

As part of its unwavering global commitment to the cause, Four Seasons organizes and participates in annual charity runs and other initiatives all over the world to raise funds toward advancing cancer research benefitting the Terry Fox Foundation and local cancer research and care facilities.

As Regional Vice President and General Manager, David Bernand, says, “Cancer is a disease that has touched us all in some way. This race is a meaningful way to honor and remember those that this disease has impacted, and to take an empowering stand against it.” We are committed to raising money to continue to help fund cancer research and clinical trials, and we need your help. Please make any size donation to join us in this fight!”
