Thornhill Terry Fox Run organizer Blaine Sikich inspired at an impressionable age

By Ben Freeman Collins, Centennial Journalism

Blaine Sikich was at an impressionable age when he first heard of Terry Fox’s run across Canada. Like the rest of the country, Sikich was saddened and touched when Fox’s life ended. But Sikich was also inspired to organize his very first Terry Fox Run, at the time using the dirt field behind his public school. Ever since then the Thornhill man has been involved one way or another.

Sikich spoke to Centennial Journalism’s Ben Collins about his memory of Terry Fox and how Fox inspired him to organize his very first run.
