Terry Fox attempted to walk across Canada years ago to raise money for cancer research. He had lost one leg to cancer. Terry started at the East Coast and ran/walked to Thunder Bay, where he had to finish, because of failing health. This monument was erected in his memory.

Since then, millions have be raised for cancer research each year in his memory. We were lucky to have seen this site on our trip across Canada by motor-home. This is a special memorial to Terry, overlooking the Trans Canada highway.
