thePodcast: The Inside Story of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope

For the week of Sept. 10, 2023: 

Many things divide Canadians, but few things unite us as much as the love for Terry Fox.

On Sept. 17, millions coast-to-coast-to-coast will walk, run or roll in memory of the Canadian hero and his dream to end cancer.

Bill Vigars of White Rock, B.C. was right there with Fox during the summer of 1980, the “summer of hope,” as he calls it. 

Vigars was working for the Canadian Cancer Society in Ontario when he was sent to join Terry’s team in New Brunswick. 

Vigars has written about the highs and lows of what became the most-important Canadian road trip, “Terry and Me: The Inside Story of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope” from Sutherland House Publishers.
