Terry’s Big Goal: A Marathon A Day

Students will be introduced to Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope — his big goal of a cross-Canada run to raise money for cancer research and awareness. Students will use inquiry and research to delve deeper into Terry’s life to build awareness around his story, and as a class, will map out a local route to get active in Terry’s memory.


  • Engage in learning about Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope
  • Inquire into and research an aspect of Terry’s life
  • Using the kilometres Terry ran across Canada, scale and map a local outdoor activity route
  • Raise awareness about Terry’s story with others in the school community and encourage action in honour of Terry’s memory
