Organizer of Terry Fox Run on Toronto Island

Looking back and moving forward on Ward’s Island

For Jordan Hill, organizer of the Ward’s Island Terry Fox Run, the event is more than just a way to commemorate Fox’s legacy. To him, the fundraiser has a more intimate meaning.
“My mom was a huge Terry Fox fan and so I grew up with Terry Fox,” said Hill. “This run is actually in her memory, she passed away from lung cancer [in] 1998, and so after we’ve done a run here on her behalf.”
