At Lincoln Alexander every year everyone in the school runs the Terry Fox run to keep Terry’s dream alive. He started his run in Newfoundland and had to end it in Ontario. He was born in Manitoba and moved to British Columbia. Terry started his run because he wanted to find a cure for cancer. He died because the cancer returned to his lungs. He had run 3339 miles (5374 kilometres) in 143 days. He was so determined to run all the way across Canada. You can keep Terry’s dream going too.
