Overview

Originally developed at the Canadian Music Theatre Project, our guiding principle has been to share Terrys story with an even wider audience and to inspire a new generation to raise significant funds for the Terry Fox Foundation to help fulfill Terrys goal of finding a cure for cancer. Musical theatre is a compelling way to share this iconic story.

Story

A folk musical based on the enduring and heroic story of Terry Fox. After his right leg had been amputated after a battle with bone cancer, Terry started a cross-country run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Although the spread of the disease forced him to end his Marathon of Hope after 143 days, his legacy has inspired hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for cancer research through the annual Terry Fox Run.
