Terry Fox: The Persistence of a Winner

I’d heard the Terry Fox story before. The young Canadian lost a leg to cancer and then decided he was going to run across the country on his other leg to raise money for cancer research. An amazing story.

But I happened to catch an ESPN.com special the other night and I sat there mesmerized by the strength, tenacity and grittiness of this incredible hero.

Watch this video and if  you can, tune into ESPN when it’s scheduled to run again. It’ll make your challenges look a lot smaller and it’ll make your determination a lot bigger!

  1. Bravo for bringing Terry’s story to a larger audience. I live near Montreal and every year our schools hold a Terry Fox Marathon where the kids raise money for the Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research. He still inspires us.
