For the week of Sept. 17, 2023: 

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

Vigars was working for the Canadian Cancer Society in Ontario when he was sent to join Terry’s team in New Brunswick. He has written about the highs and lows of what became the most-important Canadian road trip in a new memoir called “Terry and Me: The Inside Story of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.” 

Forty-three years later, the foundation named for the late Fox has raised $850 million from the annual community and school walks, runs and rolls across Canada.
