Running The Marathon of Hope with Terry


Grade 3A had a fun time imagining what it would be like to run with Terry Fox.  We wrote paragraphs explaining why Terry Fox is a true Canadian hero.  Here are some of our reasons: 

  • Terry Fox is inspiring to kids. 
  • He had hope even though he had cancer. 
  • Terry raised millions of dollars for cancer research. 
  • Terry taught other kids and people how to be brave. 
  • Terry Fox never gave up. 
  • He ran every day even though he may have been in pain. 
  • He pushed himself to run a marathon every day. 
  • Terry Fox stopped to play with kids that had cancer like him.
