To raise money for cancer research Terry began his “Marathon of Hope” in
St. John’s, Newfoundland. 

He ran 42 km every day for 143 days, until he was forced to stop in Thunder Bay due to the spread of cancer to his lungs. 

Terry died on June 28th , 1981 at 22 years old. 

Every September there are Terry Fox runs throughout Canada to remember Terry and continue to raise funds for cancer research. 

Run this year on September 16th.
