I like Terry Fox stuff almost as much as I like the Rolling Stones and Geoff Moore!

One of his shirts.
There is a touring exhibit about Terry's run, now in its 35 year, on display at the Museum of History (Civilization) in Ottawa.

I followed it on the news in 1981. He was one year younger than me. Since then, I've been to the monument in Thunder Bay where he ended the run, the location where he started in St. John's and his gravesite in Port Coquitlam. (That makes me a stalker?)

Here's some of the display.

The main leg - he had an alternate that wasn't as comfy.

Same leg - other side.

Terry's daily journal.

"The stinky" van.

Me and Terry.

His sock (check the holes) and shoe.

Presentation by Darryl Sittler.

The jug of water Terry filled in St. John's at the start of the run.
