The eastern edge of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada is the site for one of the most poignant monuments in Canada, the Terry Fox Memorial. This memorial offers a breathtaking view overlooking the Sleeping Giant. A 9-foot high bronze rendering of Terry Fox stands on a 45-ton granite base laid on a foundation of local amethyst.
The cross-Canada Marathon of Hope undertaken by this courageous young man ended near Thunder Bay in 1980 when his cancer flared again. Terry Fox continues to be an inspiration for people, young and old as a Terry Fox Run is held in communities across Canada each year in September to raise funds for cancer.
