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.”

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.
