Wow I like to think I'm a pretty tough guy, but 3:10 when he's breaking down talking about having to end the marathon and go home made me start crying like a baby. What a hero Terry was. RIP you brave soul.
Next time your knee hurts, or you have a headache, or you just dont feel like getting up for work, think of this brave kid and try to realize what he did, and the pain he was in when he did it... then get up and thank God for the pain you have... And then thank Terry for what he did.

I remember the day Terry died, and I felt so sad then. Years later I drove by his monument close to Thunder Bay, and thought he went this far which seems incredible to me. Now, sadly it looks like I've joined his fight, too. The doctors' suspect I have a slow growing form of leukemia. I keep thinking about Terry a lot during these days and it keeps adding to his poignant saying "a marathon of hope"....
Hey, guys, I am a Russian, with our own traditions. But I must to say: he was a hero! GOD bless u and ur familys!
One of the greatest Canadian heros Ever there will never be another like Terry Fox his legend lives on through his runs held every year!

Im an immigrant of Canada, never identified as a Canadian, but after reading about him and listening to his story, I can say I am very proud of be part of this country. Lots of respect for this young man. Rest in Peace Terry.
Right now, my 8 year old cousin is suffering from bone cancer, also in the right knee. She still has over a year of chemo left, followed by a long recovery period, but if it weren't for Terry she might not even make it.
He died so young... I'm not Canadian but I'm inspired here in Florida

I remember the marathon of hope very well. I was 19 in 1980, three years younger
than Terry Fox. This means alot to me.I lost a couple of good friends to cancer.

There is no greater hero or inspiration than Terry Fox. He fought so hard to help others, ignoring his own issues. RIP Terry, I think of you often.
I get tears in my eyes when I see his story.
I travelled across Canada in 2005 from BC; and was honoured to see Terry's monument. It was breath-taking and brought me to sobbing tears! He was such a self-less humble young man on Earth; and I think his greatest message was to use our gifts or trials in life to help others. He seemed to have such a sincere infectious love. Forever; many blessings to such an inspiration!!! <3
I forgot to mention; he obviously had an incredible support system to help fulfill his dreams...where-ever they are; he also wouldn't be the man he became without them <3 Heroes also have their heroes in the background!
Terry demonstrated what it really means to be a Canadian. To care for your fellow man, and to always go to any lengths, no matter how difficult, in order to help people and try and build a world with less suffering and more loving and caring.
As I saw the google doodle today I clicked on it to read about this extraordinary man and his immense passion for his cause. As I watched the video I cried part of me felt like I knew Terry like he was my friend.....I walked in his shoes for just a moment and felt his joy and sadness too. Rest in peace oh brave one for your work continues I know you must be smiling down on all who took your torch and carried it all these years....God bless you Teri and the foundation that continues to advocate for a good cause.
I'm so proud of terry fox he is my hero he is so humble he deserves all this love we will miss you terry
Many Canadians are proud of you thank you terry

Until today I had never heard of this hero from Canada in my 55 year life. I'm from the Netherlands, there has never been enough attention paid to this Canadian hero here in the Netherlands, well, the Dutch press has always been a disgrace to journalism.

💪 Terry Fox falleció a los 22 años, pero en su corto paso por este mundo nos enseñó que debemos luchar por nuestros sueños a pesar de las adversidades de la vida. Su historia, que la debería conocer todo el mundo, la cuentan muy bien en este vídeo:

As a teacher, I open each school year with a theme. This year, the theme is Plato's Ideal of "Beauty" as found in developing a strong sense of "GRIT" as a lifelong ethic. This video about Terry Fox will be my prime example to open the school year this year.

Terry ran 24 miles a day. On an amputated limb. He fought so hard and ran 3000 miles. Even running 5 miles is difficult. Terry is a Canadian hero and we cannot forget him.
Debbie Staneland
Debbie Staneland:
The greatest Canadian ever. No fame, no fortune expected. Not a politician, not famous, not a television personality, not a movie star. Just a guy that wanted to make a difference. An amazing wonderful person whose story still make me cry with gratitude even all these years later. I'll never forget hearing those awful words on the television that he'd died and seeing the nurse crying. You did us proud Terry and we keep it going in your name. Bravo.

Just here bc I has a essay homework to do abt him. I wanna say he is such a very brave man, a young man who knows how to keep his dream. Eventhough he didn't get to finish it, he still did his best. And eventhough I am not into these kind of stuff, I'm still gonna say he's Canadian's legend's pride.

I still get choked up hearing his story. Terry Fox was a true Canadian hero. God bless him.
Terry Fox was one of the reasons that inspired me to start running a few years ago. A Terry Fox run was organized some years ago in my country (only once so far) when I was still a kid, and ever since then I knew about him. Impossible to describe what he did just using words.

Growing up as a child I freaking loved this guy. The annual Terry fox run was my favorite part of the school year. I have no idea if Terry fox is still being talked about in schools like when I was a kid, I really hope he is.
Christopher Manning
Christopher Manning:
That is one brave young man right there. A legend and one true Canadian hero.
This was heart wrenching. What an inspiration to Humanity. RIP Terry.
Over here in the UK I remember British television providing regular reports on his progress across Canada. I was his age at the time. Felt great admiration for him. So sad when I heard the cancer had returned and he didn't make it.
He's truly a hero.

God bless u Terry were ever u r u will always b alive in our hearts ❤️
I hear his story for the first time, what a hero! I broke my knee ankle 5 years ago and after two surgeries and two years of sports every day, I managed to run 15 km again. But then shortly after I became very sick and almost died, I had a bad flare up with ulcerative colitis, with which I was diagnosed a few months later. I stoped running and now try to do this again. Listening to this young man, I feel so inspired! I try to raise money for a study that ensures that cortisone isn't helpful for chronic inflammation patients, its harmful. We get more inflammations from cortisone and they become worse over the years.
