June 24 – September 10, 2017

Terry Fox – Running to the Heart of Canada provides a look at Terry’s epic 143 day, 5,373 kilometer journey from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Thunder Bay, Ontario. It explores Canadians’ deep and abiding affection for Terry and examines his unique place in our collective memory. Developed in partnership with the AGB and Terry Fox’s family, the exhibition begins with the impact of Terry Fox on modern Canadian life – the numerous schools, community centers, and features of the landscape named after him, the Canadian coins, stamps, and passports bearing his image. The question posed, “Who was Terry Fox?” The rest of the exhibition is the answer.

The Terry Fox – Running to the Heart of Canada exhibition is organized by the Candian Museum of History in partnership with the Terry Fox Centre.
