Terrance "Terry" Stanley Fox started his legendary marathon in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada on April 12th, 1980. This city was chosen because it is Canada's Eastern most city on the shore of the Atlantic

The "Marathon of Hope," as his trek was called took him through six Canadian provinces, covering 3,339 miles. He ran nearly a marathon a day for 143 days before it was discovered on September 1st, 1980 that the cancer that took his leg at 18 had spread to his lungs as well.

Terry Fox was an incredible Canadian athlete who lost a leg to cancer at the age of 20, then two years later began a run across Canada to raise awareness of, and money for, cancer research.

He started his run at St. John's, NF by standing in the Atlantic Ocean, with intentions to do the same at the Pacific Ocean. He ran nearly 5400 km in 143 days, the equivalent of a full marathon every day, with an artificial leg.

His run ended in Thunder Bay Ontario, when cancer moved into his lungs. He died shortly afterward at the age of 22, just a month short of his 23 birthday.

Mr. Fox's 1980 run was joined and supported by many, many celebrities from the United States and Canada, and was covered by news media around the world. The initial run raised more than 10 million dollars.

Terry Fox is a Canadian and international hero. His "runs" continue to this day, and have raised countless millions of dollars.
