Terry Fox Run MO 2013
Terry Fox was a 19 year old college student when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his right leg. He underwent amputation of his right leg in March of 1977. After training on his artifical leg, he started his “Marathon of Hope” run across Canada on April 12th, 1980. Terry would run a marathon a day, every day – 26 miles – to raise money and awareness for cancer research. After 143 days and running 3339 miles Terry had to stop his run outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The cancer had spread to his lungs. Terry continued to battle his cancer until his passing on June 28th, 1981. Terry’s determination, courage, strength, heart and vison continues through the work of the Terry Fox Foundation. “Even if I don’t finish, we need to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.”
