CBC TV is showing a tv special about Terry Fox on Friday Night – from
8pm to 10pm. It's difficult finding any details about it, but I think this
is the one produced by Moyra Rodger who produced the Gung Haggis Fat
Choy tv special in 2004. Here's a media release from www.publicairwaves.ca about the planned events that are being scaled back because for the CBC lock-out.
I have really been looking forward to this tv special, as I saw them
filming the Canadian Mint coin launch for the Terry Fox $1 coin.
Darrell Fox and I exchanged wonderful praises of what it was like
working with Moyra.

Checking the CBC website, I found their archive collection of Terry Fox news clips – pretty amazing – documenting his journey from before to after. Check it out!
I will be attending the Port Coquitlam Hometown Run this year.
This is my 13th year of being a Terry's Team member, cancer survivors
who serve as living examples that cancer research has made a
difference. I have always spoken at Terry Fox Run sites each year
throughout the Lower Mainland, sometimes 3 in one day – but I have
never before attended the Hometown Run. Special guests include
The Fox Family, Rick Hansen + Prime Minister Paul Martin. There
will also be a Rod Stewart impersonator singing the song “Never Give Up
On a Dream” which Rod wrote for Terry.
