The premier fundraising event for the "Terry Fox at Work Day" is the Great Canadian Head Shave, a nationally coordinated event open to all "Terry Fox at Work Day" participants. The goal is to have as many communities and workplaces as possible across Canada host a head shave event.

If head shaving is too radical for your office, the Terry Fox Foundation offers
other ideas such as BBQs, lunches and auctions to name a few. Call 1-888-836-9786 or visit
