  • #OnThisDay - July 5, 1980 - Millbrook, ON 
With a temperature in the 30s, Terry collapsed in the van from exhaustion - his breath laboured, his eyes closed as if blocking out the light and the pain with a wrinkled $100 bill, damp from perspiration, clasped tightly in his hands.

  • #OnThisDay - Just outside of Ottawa, ON: 3,113 km
“…everybody seems to have given up hope of trying. I haven’t. It isn’t easy and it isn’t supposed to be, but I’m accomplishing something. How many people give up a lot to do something good? I’m sure we would have found a cure for cancer twenty years ago if we had really tried.” http://ow.ly/PYh850AkzjQ

  • #OnThisDay - June 28, 1981: Canadians awoke to the devastating news that Terry Fox had succumbed to cancer, his family by his side. He entrusted his dream of a world free of cancer to Canadians, and we promised to take his Marathon of Hope across the finish line.
