Terry Fox

Terry Fox's 30th Anniversary of the Marathon of Hope

This marks the 30th Anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope. On Sept. 19th people from all across Canada will have an opportunity to continue Terry's legacy of raising funds to find a cure for cancer. To date over $500 million (CDN$) has been raised.

In the U.S., Canadian expats have organized Terry Fox Runs in New York City and Raleigh. On Sept. 28th, ESPN will air a film about Terry, 'Into the Wind', directed by Canadian Steve Nash.

As a tribute to Terry, the Canadian Expat Network has interviewed a number of people who played vital roles in this Great Canadian Story. This week you can read about Darryl Sittler (one of Terry's heroes), Judith Fox- Alder (Terry's sister), Bill Vigars (PR & friend) and updates from the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI).

In the next 2 weeks, there will be additional coverage, that includes stories from Isadore Sharp (Founder of the Terry Fox Run and Four Season's Hotel), Leslie Scrivener (Author of Terry's book and Toronto Star reporter), Gail Harvey (photographer) and more from Judith Fox-Alder and TFRI.
