Trivia

In the re-enactment of Terry Fox's speech in Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square, Terry is wearing a hockey jersey with nothing on the front. In real life, he was wearing Darryl Sittler's NHL All-Star Team jersey (with the NHL logo displayed predominantly), but the cost of licensing the NHL logo meant the shirt was left blank (though Sittler's name and number is still on the back) See more »

Goofs

When Darryl Fox joined Terry and his friend in Eastern Canada he brought music by Ratt and Anthrax to listen to. Ratt and Anthrax came out in 1984, four years after Terry's run. See more »

Terry Fox
18 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie! It was so good. Those who haven't watched the movie yet, rent it!! Shawn is brilliant in this movie as he portraits Terry Fox. He is such an inspiration to all of us Canadians. He never thought of himself while he ran the Marathon of Hope, but only the children who suffered from cancer all over Canada. He has done such an amazing thing by running across Canada to raise money for cancer research that he gave the children hope that they will survive and that at least somebody cares about them and is willing to do something about it. His dream came true even after his death and his legacy lives on! For 25 years, millions of Canadians have done the Terry Fox run in honor of his memory and they've raised millions of dollars! "A dollar for each Canadian" Terry said, and his dream came true. Terry Fox truly is Canada's biggest hero.
