Hey students, tell us what Terry means to you.

Terry’s mom Betty used to say that her son was ordinary. He liked school, loved sports and could not resist an opportunity to tease his little sister. It’s the little things like this that make us feel like we know Terry, that he could have been a friend, classmate, teammate.

And yet, Terry and his Marathon of Hope is still remembered and admired 37 years after it began. Why? What is it about Terry that keeps Canadians like you talking about him? Could you see yourself running with him if he ran now? Would you want to take a selfie with Terry? What would you say to him if you met him today?

In honour of the 37th Anniversary of the start of the Marathon of Hope please tell us what Terry Means to You. And you just might be the lucky recipient of one of 150 Terry Fox Run shirts.

Thanks for sharing!

Please complete the required fields.

Only one submission per student, please.

I think what Terry means is to run for cancer because you may save a kid or adults life.When we run we raise money for cancer,so if we all schools run we could raise so much money that we will have enough money to stop cancer and fight for a kids and adults right.

I think Terry Fox showed courage because he ran all around Canada for us and never gave up even when he had a broken leg. Also Terry Fox showed kindness because he raised money and gave it to cancer resource that is what he means to me.

He was putting his life in more danger to help others. Canadians are always talking about Terry because he is an inspiration to all. He had a problem, yet he made the most of it by doing his best. Of course I would take a selfie with Terry! Who wouldn't? I would tell him that is all going to be okay

Terry Fox is an inspiration to me because he ran when he had an amputated leg and even if he wasn't feeling the best he would still run. He ran for cancer because he knew how it felt to have it. He had hope that he could run to create awareness. If I could talk to him I would say "Thank you."

Terry Fox has inspired me for a long time. He encourages me to make my dreams become a reality. He shows me that you need to try and try to make your dreams come true. Terry Fox has set an example to everyone that if you fall you get back up. He is an amazing role model. Terry is extraordinary.

Terry Fox is a familiar name to Canadians. He showed us that in this awesome country we have the freedom to pursue what we are passionate about. He showed me what determination looks like. He showed me that one person can make a big difference. He showed me anyone can be a hero. #TerryFoxCanada150

Terry is a hero, he had so much courage and perseverance, if I met Terry I would tell him how much of a hero he is and how many lives he has saved. I could never do that run and I have both of my legs. Terry fox is my hero. and a national hero.

He is special to me because if I ever get cancer there will be money so that the hospital can get the medicine and I could be cancer free if I got cancer. And I still have a a long life ahead of me because I am only nine years old. This is in 2017.

I am from St.Mark C.S and Terry fox inspires me because I know that even though Terry had cancer an only had one leg he ran many many miles and kept trying to the end to raise money for the small children that inspired him to do something that changed a nation and is still celebrated 37 years later.

I can't believe that someone as young as Terry was, had the vision he did to change the world so much! He is such an inspiration to all the younger people who hear his story. I am so grateful that we honor him every year by going on the Terry Fox walk.

Terry is truly an inspiration. I am a teacher at Bishop Pocock School in Saskatoon and I have had the opportunity to spearhead the school run every September. It is amazing to me how excited the students get after hearing what Terry did. We listen to 500 miles on the big screen, and run for research
