A cancer survivor’s Trek

It started as an innocent looking email from the Terry Fox Organization. I had participated in the Terry Fox Run as a kid in school, but also more recently for the last 12 years since going through my own cancer journey. I’d never done a hike to the top of a mountain of this magnitude before. I was intrigued. I soon decided I could do this and started a training plan that expanded upon my usual 10k running, but also included going up and down thousands of stairs. None of this training prepared me for the emotional journey I was about to take up Terry Fox Mountain.
