Terry Fox Monument donated to City of Burlington

Through its public art program, the City of Burlington has received a permanent monument dedicated to Terry Fox, who continues to inspire many Canadians to raise money for cancer through his legacy.

“Terry Fox left an incredible legacy, which continues to be celebrated by Canadians,” said Mayor Rick Goldring. “I want to thank the Burlington Terry Fox Monument Committee for this artwork that will inspire current and future generations of Burlington citizens.”

About Terry Fox
Terry Fox was a Canadian diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of 18. He decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research in what became known as the Marathon of Hope in 1980. The monument is on the Burlington Terry Fox Run, which happens annually in September along the Waterfront Trail through Spencer Smith Park.
