CBC Radio is actively helping to collect stories about Terry Fox to be
published in a book by Douglas McIntyre to help celebrate the 25th
Anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope. All the
stories will be given to Douglas Coupland to select and edit, as well
as be broadcast on CBC Radio and Television.
Here's what will be happening:
Microphones are set up for audience questions and
Terry Fox memories and stories. We encourage you to
join in, your participation in the CBC Studio One
Book Club is an important part of the broadcast.
This Book Club is part of CBC's national partnership
with the Fox family, Douglas & McIntyre publishing,
and Douglas Coupland to collect memories, stories,
artwork, photos and souvenirs that describe how
Canadians feel about Terry Fox. Doug will be
turning some of this material into a new book called
"Memories of Terry: Canada's National Scrapebook",
as a companion book to "Terry". As with "Terry",
all his work and royalities are being donated to the
Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research. "Memories
of Terry" will be published in the Fall of 2006, to
commemorate the 25th anniversary of the very first
public Terry Fox Run.
This is very cool as I am a Terry's Team member – a
cancer survivor who attends and/or speaks at Terry Fox Runs, serving as
a living example that cancer research has made a difference.
I think I will wear my Terry's Team t-shirt to the event. The Terry Fox Run Foundation gives me a shirt each year to wear at the event.
