A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION ORGANIZED BY THE CANADIAN MUSEUM OF HISTORY, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE TERRY FOX CENTRE.

On April 12, 1980, a young athlete from British Columbia named Terry Fox who had lost his right leg to cancer, dipped his artificial limb in the Atlantic Ocean. So began the Marathon of Hope, his run across Canada to raise money for cancer research.
