Storyline

In 1980, Terry Fox continued his fight against bone cancer with the pursuit of a singular, motivating vision: to run across Canada. Three years after having his right leg amputated six inches above the knee after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma, Fox set out to cover more than a marathon's distance each day until he reached the shores of Victoria, British Columbia. Anonymous at the start of his journey, Fox steadily captured the heart of a nation with his Marathon of Hope. However the 21-year old BC native's goal was not fame, but to spread awareness and raise funds for cancer research. After 143 days and two-thirds of the way across Canada, with the eyes of a country watching, Fox's journey came to an abrupt end when newly discovered tumors took over his body. Two-time NBA MVP, proud Canadian, and first-time filmmaker Steve Nash will share Fox's incredible story of perseverance and hope. Written by ESPN Films

The Memorable Terry Fox
1 February 2011 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Boy, as someone who lives right across from Canada and used to watch Canadian TV as well as USA networks, I was very familiar with the Terry Fox story.

Who couldn't have admiration for his long run through Canada to raise awareness and money for Cancer? It was incredibly inspiring.

This behind-the-scenes look is good because it gives a good profile of Fox and shows the low moments as well as the glamor of being in Canada's spotlight, and what he thought of it all.

The long run was a terrible struggle, physically and mentally,and well-documented here. Kudos to basketball great Steve Nash in his directorial debut.
