Does the Terry Fox Foundation Support Embryonic Stem Cell Research?

Every year, my kids come home with requests to raise money for the Terry Fox run.

I re-verify this year.

This year's answer is: yes, they do.

As evidence, this application for research funds, from their website:

Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Applicants are required to approach TFRI before submitting an application for support of research including human embryonic stem cells. TFRI endorses the guidelines set forward by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research ‘Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Research (June 30, 2010)

I think Catholic schools should break off their relationship with this entity.
