The Terry Fox Foundation continues in memory of Terry Fox, a Canadian cancer victim who ran more than 3,000 miles (5,000 kilometres) in 143 days with a prosthetic limb to raise money for cancer research. Four SeasonsHotels and Resorts, as a Canadian company, has supported the charity ever since Terry’s death in 1981. Each run, held in different Four Seasons hotels and resorts around the world, splits its proceeds with a local charity of choice. Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire and Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane are proud to support The Brain Tumour Charity, the leading charity dedicated to brain tumour research in the UK.

About The Brain Tumour Charity
The Brain Tumour Charity is the result of the merger of The Brain Tumour Charity (formerly Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust), Brain Tumour UK and The Joseph Foote Trust. Their work is inspired by Samantha and Joseph, who sadly lost their lives to a brain tumour, and every person who has been affected. Neil and Angela founded the Samantha Dickson Research Trust in 1996 after the tragic loss of their daughter Samantha to a brain tumour at just 16. At the time they were horrified by the lack of funding for research and support. They knew they had to make a difference and were driven to start the charity to redress the balance. In its time, the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (as it was formerly known) raised over GBP 12 million for vital research and to provide much-needed support and information. It is testament to their hard work, dedication and commitment over the past 15 years that they have now become The Brain Tumour Charity, reflecting the charity’s position as the largest and leading brain tumour charity in the UK.
