On April 12th, 38 years ago, Terry Fox started his Marathon of Hope. We are told that we can do anything if we set our minds to it, never give up, never give in. During his 143 days of running a marathon a day on an artificial leg, Terry showed us all that the impossible IS possible. He reminded us that we could make a difference in the world and change people’s lives for the better. Join us in wearing your favourite Terry Fox tee, read one of his books, watch a video on Youtube or tweet #terryfox. Let’s also remember to congratulate ourselves on the difference we have made on the lives of cancer patients with our fundraising effort. I think Tery would be very proud of us all!
