Terry meets his hockey idol Darryl Sittler who gave Terry his 1980 NHL all-star team sweater. Darryl said, “I’ve been around athletes a long time and I’ve never seen any with his courage and stamina.” One on-looker commented, “He makes you believe in the human race again.” #beliketerry

Happy Canada Day everybody! True, north, strong and free.

On June 28, 1981, at 4:35 a.m., Terry took his final breath, surrounded by the love of his family and his nation. Canadians could not believe that this strong, courageous and principled man would never run again. But then we realized it was now our turn; we could do the running for Terry. Really, what choice did we have? He made us believe that we could do anything, including finding a cure for cancer. Thank you, Terry, for lighting a fire of hope that burns brighter every day.

June 26, 1982 – The Thunder Bay Monument, a 2.7-metre (9-foot) bronze statue of Terry, is unveiled at Terry Fox lookout west of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Have a photo of a Terry Fox Monument? Please share :)

After a reception where Terry ran with some school children, he wrote: “When I ran with the kids I really burned it just to show them how fast I could go. They were tired and puffing. All right!” #TerryFoxRun

“Today we got up at 4:00 am. As usual, it was tough. If I died, I would die happy because I was doing what I wanted to do. How many people could say that? I went out and did fifteen push-ups in the road and took off. I want to set an example that will never be forgotten.” - Terry Fox
