Today is “Terry Fox Day.” Who is Terry Fox? I’ll tell you. When I was growing up in Canada there was an athlete, more importantly an 18 year old with a goal. In 1980, Fox set out to raise a million dollars by running across Canada from east to west. At the time he thought he had beaten cancer but in the end it took him.
