The 35th annual Terry Fox Run is taking place at a number of locations across the country today.
The event marks the birthright of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, which originated back in 1980 for the sole purpose of educating Canadians about the significance of finding a cure for cancer.
Fox ran an average of 42 kilometres daily over the span of 143 days after learning he had bone cancer, which would eventually spread to his lungs.
There are hundreds of runs that take place for this event around Canada each year.
