A Terry Fox exhibit has opened at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in Calgary – just days before the 36th annual Terry Fox Run.
His brother Darrell says the exhibit would have meant a lot to Terry because he saw his Marathon of Hope as an athletic endeavour as much as it was to raise money and awareness about cancer.
Fox was inducted into the sports hall of fame shortly after his death in 1981.
A signed Wayne Gretzky jersey given to Fox just before he started his Marathon of Hope on April 12, 1980, is among the items at the exhibit, which is open to the public until December.
