Ryan Reynolds is proud to support a good cause — and he’s raised more than $1 million doing it.

Back in February, the Canadian actor shared that he has partnered with the Terry Fox Foundation to create a new “Dear Terry” T-shirt for the 43 annual Terry Fox Run.

“Happy to be involved with the #DearTerry initiative for @terryfoxfoundation,” Reynolds wrote on Instagram. “I’ve been taking part in the Terry Fox Run since second grade and can’t think of a more enduring and lovely legacy for one person.”

“Terry Fox inspired millions in life and death. ❤️ 🇨🇦,” he added.

Due to the overwhelming interest in the shirt, which will raise money for the cause, the Terry Fox Foundation has launched its first ever pre-sale for anyone hoping to get their hands on it.

According to the foundation, that pre-sale has been a rousing success, with 28,000 shirts sold, raising more than $1 million.

The T-shirt will officially launch and ship on April 12, the same day Fox began his Marathon of Hope in 1980 to raise cancer awareness and encourage the government to spend more on cancer research.

The first ever Terry Fox Run was held the next year, on Sept. 13, 1981, attracting over 300,000 participants and raising $3.5 million for cancer research.

Since then the event has gone international, with people participating in as many as 60 countries, raising over $850 as of May 2022.
