For the eighth year, Four Seasons Hotel Doha is supporting the Terry Fox Run with all the proceeds benefiting Cancer Research. The Terry Fox Run is an annual marathon held to help raise funds and awareness for finding a cure for cancer. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts founder and CEO Isadore Sharp has made a commitment to support the annual fund raising event, the Terry Fox run since Terry Fox , a young Canadian man suffering from bone cancer, initiate the event in 1980. Although, he got his left leg amputated, Terry was determined to run across Canada to generate awareness and raise funds for Cancer research.
