Terry Fox

by Ben from Innisfil

Terry Fox is my hero because he takes a lot of risks. Like running a marathon with 1 leg.

Terry was born July 28 1958 Winnipeg, Manitoba. 1997 Terry discovered he had a tumor in his right leg. Terry had two brothers a mom and a dad.

One of the obstacles Terry had to go through was having an artificial leg. He overcame it by just ignoring them. I consider him as a hero because he raised money for cancer.

I think Terry is nice. Because he raised money for cancer research. I also think he is strong because he ran a marathon with 1 leg.

Terry Fox influenced me to raise money for cancer because that is what Terry Fox did.
