Who was Terry Fox and why is he so fondly remembered today, April 12, 2010?
It was 30 years ago today that this determined 21 year old began his awe-inspiring and beloved Marathon of Hope westward across Canada. Last year, I shared my early memories of Terry on I Miss My Childhood. Here's hoping that those who are not yet familiar with the story of Terry Fox will come to discover this incredible and unforgettable young man, and his life's mission.
