YEAR IN REVIEW: Province unveils Fox memorial
Terry Fox’s importance to British Columbia was immortalized with a four-statue memorial in front of B.C. Place Stadium this year.
Students started the event with a mini Terry Fox Run to the plaza.
Douglas Coupland, the internationally renowned author and visual artist, was commissioned to create the memorial, which had four statues that give the impression of Terry running toward the viewer, growing larger from back to front. The scene is taken from the cross-Canada Marathon of Hope in 1980.
