He became famous for the Marathon of Hope, a cross- Canada run to raise money for cancer research, which he himself ran with a prosthetic leg. In 1979, Terry wrote to the Canadian Cancer Society to support his run. He ran close to 42 kilometers a day through Canadas Atlantic Provinces and after 143 days and 5,373 kilometers, Terry was forced to stop running because cancer had appeared in his lungs. Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at the age 22, leaving a sad and stunned nation behind. (More information on www.terryfox.org)
