The family of Port Coquitlam hometown hero Terry Fox — and the foundation built around the cancer crusader — was recognized last Saturday by the Vancouver Canucks.

The NHL team is honouring local heroes every month this season as part of its Heart of A Canuck campaign to thank B.C. residents who have shown “honour, humility, integrity and passion.”

Photographed during the ceremonial face-off between Canucks captain Henrik Sedin and his Washington Capitals counterpart Alexander Ovechkin are (left to right) Darrell Fox, Fred Fox, super fundraiser Jim Terrion of Prince George, Rolly Fox and Judith Fox-Alder.

The Canucks won the game 7-4.

Meanwhile, students and staff at Moody middle last month celebrated the Port Moody school’s achievement by raising $36,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation — currently the highest amount collected from a B.C. school this year.

Moody middle has for a number of years been one of the biggest fundraising schools in the province.
