Terry Fox to be added to Canada's Walk of Fame on Saturday
Port Coquitlam hero Terry Fox will be one of eight Canadians inducted into the country’s Walk of Fame tomorrow.
The unveiling Saturday will happen at the corner of Yonge and Queen streets in Toronto before Rolly and Darrell Fox — Terry’s father and brother — and Doug Alward and Bill Vigars.
Alward was Terry’s best friend at PoCo high school and joined him on his Marathon of Hope in 1980; Vigars was the Canadian Cancer Society representative who promoted Terry’s epic cross-country journey to raise money for cancer research. It will be the first time in more than 30 years that Darrell Fox, who was also part of the Marathon of Hope, Alward and Vigars have been together, according to the Terry Fox Foundation.
The other 2013 Walk of Fame inductees are Bob Ezrin (music producer); Victor Garber (actor); Craig and Marc Kielburger (human rights activists); the late Oscar Peterson (musician); Christine Sinclair (soccer captain); and Alan Thicke (actor).
The 15th anniversary of the Canadian Walk of Fame awards show will air on Oct. 27 and will feature a star-studded cast, including Mike Myers, Carly Rae Jepsen and Martin Short.
