Terry Fox Memorial

If you’re old enough like myself you will recall Terry Fox in the summer of 1980 running across Canada after losing a leg to cancer. It was a huge story on the US news and even bigger in Canada. He started in Newfoundland and made it as far as just east of Thunder Bay Ontario before cancer stopped him. He passed away the following year. In Thunder Bay is a memorial to Terry Fox with the Sleeping Giant Mountain behind him. I remember this story as if it was just yesterday. It made quite an impression.
