Fred Fox, brother of Terry Fox, on the 40th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope

On Sunday September 20th Canadians around the world will run, walk and roll in the annual Terry Fox Run. In 1980, just 2 years after losing his leg to cancer, 21-year old Terry Fox set out on his Marathon of Hope to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Sunday’s run marks 40 years since that heroic attempt, but Terry’s dream of eradicating cancer lives on.
