This weekend is the Terry Fox Run.

It is a very well known event across Canada.

In 1977, Terry Fox was 18 years old.
His right leg was amputated. He had bone cancer.
He did not let this stop him.
He planned a run to raise money for cancer research.

In 1980, Terry Fox began the “Marathon of Hope.”
He ran almost 42 kilometres (26 miles) per day,
for 143 days.

But the cancer returned. Terry passed away on June 28, 1981.

Canadians celebrate Terry Fox and his heroism every year.

On September 14, 2014,
people will run to help raise money for cancer research.

There are running events all over Canada and the world.
