Gather with the Markham Community to congratulate Markham Olympians: Rose LaBrèche from Canada’s Rugby Team; fencer, Maxime Brinck-Croteau; and track star, Andre De Grasse!
Terry Fox Run – Join with all of Canada in the Marathon of Hope. 36 years ago, Terry Fox began his journey across Canada to raise money and awareness for cancer. Fox was not able to reach his final destination but Canada has taken up the cause. Every community is doing something for this weekend, so see how you can get involved to help. Together, we will continue moving towards a world without cancer, one step at a time.
