Terry Fox

Author: Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

Illustrated by: Tierra Connor

Meet Terry Fox, the legendary Canadian who ran the Marathon of Hope.

Terry loved every sport under the sun. He was training to become a sports teacher when he received the cancer diagnosis that meant that his leg would have to be amputated. Owing to his experiences as a patient, Terry decided that he had to do something to raise money and awareness for cancer research. He embarked upon an incredible feat, the Marathon of Hope, in which he ran for 143 days, travelling the equivalent of a single marathon every day, and raised millions of dollars for his fellow Canadians. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the legendary Canadian hero.
