Sheila Singh, an associate professor of surgery at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, and her Terry Fox Program Project Grant research team sweating for a cause at this weekends' Terry Fox Run.

Sheila Singh’s Terry Fox Program Project Grant research team showed their commitment to beating cancer by joining the Terry Fox Run on the weekend to raise funds towards a cure for cancer. The team, which is composed of researchers from McMaster’s Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute and the University of Toronto, ran a five kilometre leg of the run from the Oakville Bronte Park.

“I know from direct communications multiple times over that cancer patients and fundraisers alike are so inspired when a team of scientists like us joins the run: it means so much to them to see us visibly contributing to their cause, which is to support research,” said Singh.

“They know we are working 24/7 to make the lives of cancer patients ultimately better. It's all mutually rewarding: they give us inspiration, and we give them hope.”
