With a national hero, Terry Fox, being a hometown boy, it's no surprise that the Terry Fox Run has become a Tri-City institution. Indeed, it could be argued that the support for his cause is possibly stronger here than anywhere else.
No fewer than four runs are taking place in the Tri-Cities this Sunday to raise funds for the Terry Fox Foundation. That means there is no shortage of opportunities to contribute to the family run fund that has collected more than $500 million worldwide.
But Terry's legacy doesn't stop there. In fact, his dream is an international phenomenon, with folks from Dubai to India running and raising money to further his dream of ending cancer.
Terry has been described as a simple guy with a big dream. He understood that great things could be accomplished if everyone did a little bit.
He took the first step and now - especially now, following the death of Betty Fox - we must pick up the torch.
