Terry Fox Starts Epic Run on April 12, 1980


38 years ago today Terry and his best friend Doug Alward set out on the Marathon of Hope. The weather might have cast a chill on the start of Terry’s run but the hearts of Newfoundlanders warmed him throughout his first month on the road. And it continued for another 143 days as Terry ran into the hearts of Canadians and people around the world. Help us mark those 143 days of the Marathon of Hope by taking part in “I Remember Seeing Terry”.

Thank you for making these past 38 years a wonderful tribute to a young man who believed we could all make a difference in the battle to defeat cancer.
