A travelling exhibit honouring Terry Fox is coming to Oakville and residents have the opportunity to showcase their own memorabilia celebrating the Canadian icon.

The exhibit, Terry Fox — Running to the Heart of Canada, will be displayed at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex from April 12 to Sept. 9.

Developed by the Canadian Museum of History in partnership with Terry Fox’s family, it features maps, photographs and newspaper imagery telling the story of the Marathon of Hope, which began April 12, 1980 when Fox started his cross-country run to raise money for cancer research.

“Terry Fox is a symbol of courage and hope for Canadians across the country. His unwavering passion and determination continues to inspire and motivate us,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton.
