In 1980, Terry was just a young man with a dream. Three years earlier, he had lost a leg to cancer. Some combination of passion, idealism and sheer guts led to the impossible notion that he would run across Canada on one good leg and a prosthesis. His goal was to raise $1 from every Canadian to help find a cure for cancer.

Twenty-five years later, the dream remains alive, and Terry’s legacy has raised more than $360 million for cancer research. Momentum continues to build, and the 25th anniversary events planned for April 2005 promise to be unprecedented.

Terry has been written with the support of the Fox family and the design reflects the style of Douglas Coupland’s Souvenir projects, mixing more than 145 superb photographs of a previously unknown collection of family memorabilia with a very moving text about Terry’s life and the Marathon of Hope. Printed in full colour, the book brings a profound moment in Canadian history, and the young man who inspired it, freshly to life.
