Connect ESL students participated in the Terry Fox Run in High Park yesterday. The Terry Fox Run is an annual event that supports the fight against cancer.
Terry Fox attempted to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. Terry had lost his leg to cancer earlier in his life. His determination sparked a national outpouring of love to Terry and helped to raise millions of dollars for cancer research.
Sadly, Terry could not finish his run across Canada as his cancer returned. Despite an incredible battle, Terry died of cancer but his spirit lives on in the Terry Fox Run.
