Terry Fox running the Marathon of Hope in 1980

Terry Fox was a Canadian hero. Fox was only 18-years-old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer). Due to the tumour in his leg; the leg was amputated to just above his knee. Fox decided he wanted to do something incredible to raise money for cancer research; and that he did. On April 12, 1980 he began his Marathon of Hope by running across Canada starting in St. John’s, N.L. Fox reached Thunder Bay, ON and the cancer had spread to his lungs. Terry Fox died on June 28, 1981 only a month before his twenty-third birthday. Fox left a lasting legacy behind him, and today Canadians proudly carry that legacy on.
