Terry's father Rolly and sister Judith also joined the group, which set out from the Sheraton Hotel and ran to and from the Terry Fox Miracle Mile. The group included researchers, clinicians and trainees who were attending the inaugural Canadian Cancer Research Conference in Toronto; many are funded by Terry Fox through its translational, discovery and capacity-building projects and programs. Daniel Clattenburg of Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia was the first runner to complete the route with a time of 25 minutes.
