When I approached this topic initially, it was with awe and trepidation. I grew up inspired by Terry and his Marathon of Hope and never thought we would someday be related through marriage. It was not until cancer touched treasured family members that I realised how important and relevant Terry’s message still is today - 36 years later. So I sent out feelers into the community to see how the citizens of Lethbridge could help me flesh out the ways they participated in the Marathon of Hope. The response was amazing! I have to thank Principal Carolle Babin from École Agnes Davison School, Brenda Oman from General Stewart School, Fred Fox and Rhonda Riseborough from the Terry Fox Foundation and my in-laws, Joy and Terry Fox, for their aid in bringing this exhibit into reality.
Come and see The Terry Fox Legacy Lives Here! at the Galt Museum and Archives. It is currently on display until June 30 in the Museum’s Servus Credit Union Learning Studio.
