Run For Hope (RFH) is an annual run organised by Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) to raise much-needed awareness and support for cancer research. For more than 30 years, the Four Seasons group of hotel & resorts across the world have been deeply committed to the cause of advancing cancer research.
Mr Isadore Sharp, CEO and founder of the Canadian-based Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, lost his fourth son Christopher to melanoma cancer in 1978. In memory of his son, Mr Sharp spearheaded a worldwide programme that established annual runs raising funds for cancer research in cities where their hotels and resorts are located. He was inspired by Terry Fox, whom despite having lost a leg to cancer, ran across Canada to raise money and cancer awareness in 1980. Increasingly convinced that more needed to be done, Mr Sharp ensured his legacy lived on even after Terry’s death. Four Seasons employees worldwide have since been supporting Terry’s dream in striving to advance cancer research, and Run For Hope is one of their efforts. Every Four Seasons hotel and resort actively supports local and regional efforts to find a cure for cancer.
