Terry Fox is a Canadian hero – a young cancer patient who decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. His journey was called the Marathon of Hope.
You can run in Terry’s footsteps along his 16km route that he used to train for his cross-Canada trek. The leg of this route in Coquitlam starts at the intersection of Lincoln and Pipeline and stretches to the intersection at Guildford and Falcon Drive.
