The Terry Fox Story
Terry's Last Day of the Marathon of Hope
He dipped his artificial leg in the muddy waters of St John’s harbour in the Atlantic Ocean and set off on the greatest adventure of his life. A police escort and a small crowd witness the departure of Terry and his van, which carries eight pairs of running shoes, three extra legs and various spare parts.
