On Tuesday, ESPN will air a documentary directed by two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash and Ezra Holland on one of the Greatest Canadians Terry Fox. You might be familiar with his story. Fox was diagnosed with cancer and decided that he would try to raise $1 for every Canadian for cancer research and start the Marathon of Hope, an ambitious run across Canada. Fox would do it running on a prosthetic leg and he had to stop two-thirds of the way through his run.
Fox’s legacy and courage lives on through the annual Terry Fox Run both in Canada and worldwide. Here’s the trailer of the documentary that airs Tuesday night at 8 on ESPN.
Here’s a scene from the documentary where Terry enters Toronto and finds the run is capturing Canada’s imagination.
I hope to have a review of the documentary before it airs.
You can find out more about Terry Fox at the Terry Fox Foundation.
