This year marks the 35th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, and across Metro Vancouver, people will be honouring his name and raising money for cancer research by doing the Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 20.

The Canadian hero had a plan to run from St. John’s Newfoundland to Vancouver to raise money for cancer research. Fox’s own struggle with bone cancer at age 18 forced doctors to amputate his leg just above his knee, but that wouldn’t stop him. His journey started on April 12, 1980, and he managed to run more than 5,000 kilometres to Thunder Bay when on September 1, 1980, he was forced to stop after his cancer came back.

Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at the age of 22, but his legacy lives on.
