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.

Terry Fox showed us an example of what it really meant to be a selfless human. He didn't run for himself or the people he saw in hospitals or knew, he ran for the future of all humanity. He didn't think of the pain he had to go through, he just ran. Terry Fox was an inspiration I will never forget

Terry means hope for people to just go for their dreams and never give up,whether for yourself or even better,for others.In islam,it is a true fact that every disease or sickness has a cure,and Terry has made cures for cancer closer to being found.He's human,we're human and we can make it happen too

He is an amazing guy and he has inspired me to be who I am and who I want to become. He is selfless and he gives more then he even has to give. He is spirited and an amazing guy. He is completely self less and he continues to inspire people of all ages more and more through the years.

Terry Fox was a great man with integrity. We admire how far he ran, even though he was in pain and it was hard. Even though he is gone, we all believe in his Marathon of Hope. He made it so people have hope that cancer can be beaten. Terry Fox saved a lot of people by starting the Marathon.

To me, Terry Fox is amazing. My family doesn't have a history of cancer, but it could still happen. Knowing how much money he raised and is still raising, it makes me feel better that if someone does get cancer that they can be okay. Terry is someone I want to be like.

Terry Fox means hope to me because he ran a distance that most Canadians would only run in their dreams with a fake leg and lung cancer every day till cancer took over him and made 1 000 000 dollars and it would absolutely make my day if could see him.

If I had met Terry Fox I would be so excited also I would have taken a selfie to remember that day. If I had the cancer that Terry had I would do the same thing. I would give all the money to all the people that have cancer and people that don't have a home. Terry you are so good at what you did.

Terry never gave up. Because of him I've been running and walking to school with my mom every day because he taught me to never give up. And we ran in a race, and never won a prize, but I didn't cry because Terry taught me to never give up!
