It was 31 years ago that Terry Fox began his iconic Marathon of Hope, running across Canada to raise funds to fight cancer, the disease that took his right leg. His goal was to persuade every Canadian to donate one dollar for cancer research. Terry was forced to end his run in Thunder Bay, Ontario when the cancer he fought off three years earlier returned. He had run 143 days straight, averaging a marathon distance (42 km) every day, and running 5,374 km in total. While his dream to run across the country died, Terry Fox's dream to raise money and awareness thrived with the birth of the annual Terry Fox Run and The Terry Fox Foundation.
