Time flies, as this marks the 30th Anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope. The summer of 1980 was a memorable time for many.

As a tribute to Terry and to help promote the awareness of his story abroad, the Canadian Expat Network will be sharing a number of stories from individuals who were involved in Terry's incredible Run that raised millions for cancer research and united our great country.

In the next two September newsletter editions, you'll be able to read Terry Fox related articles from interviews with:

  • Leslie Scrivener (Terry Fox author and Toronto Star Reporter)
  • Isadore Sharp (Founder of the Terry Fox Run & the Four Seasons Hotel)
  • Darryl Sittler (Terry's hero and Toronto Maple Leaf great)
  • Bill Vigars (Helped Terry with PR while at the Ontario Cancer Society)
  • Gail Harvey (Photographer, her photo of Terry appears on the loonie)

Also, a reminder that 'Into the Wind' a film about Terry, produced by Steve Nash will be shown Sept. 28th at 7:00 on ESPN.
