Learn about the man who made his country so proud! Celebrate the life of a true Canadian hero with this beautiful tribute to Terry Fox. Students will be inspired to learn about his perseverance and courage.
Dozens of photographs and simple, evocative text combine to tell the story of Terry's life and legacy―how he grew up loving sports and competition, always determined to finish what he started; how he developed cancer and lost his leg; how he trained day after day, on one strong leg and a prosthetic limb, with the idea that he might try to run across Canada; how he managed to make it two-thirds of the way before cancer returned; and how by so doing, he inspired millions of people around the world and raised millions of dollars for cancer research.
