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 September 19th people from all across Canada had the opportunity to continue Terry's legacy of raising funds to find a cure for cancer. To date over $500 million (CDN$) has been raised.

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 Isadore Sharp (Run Founder), Leslie Scrivener (Terry Fox author and Toronto Star reporter), Gail Harvey (photographer) and 'by the numbers' from the Terry Fox Research Institute.

You can also see pictures from the first Terry Fox Run in North Carolina which included Terry's sister, Judith Fox-Alder.

Additionally, here are stories from the last newsletter that included 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).

Reminder that on Sept. 28th at 8:00 PM ESPN will air a film about Terry, 'Into the Wind', directed by Canadian Steve Nash.
