“Marathon of Hope" runner Terry Fox was born in Winnipeg. After losing a leg to cancer, Fox inspired millions of people around the world and drew nationwide attention by attempting to run across Canada from east to west to raise funds for cancer research. Though his run was cut short by the cancer that would take his life, Fox remains an example of determination and the power of the human spirit. His memory is honoured around the world with the annual Terry Fox Run.
