Terry Fox Story continues to inspire in Thornhill

Blaine Sikich was only 12 when he watched Terry Fox attempt his historic run across Canada and the tragic end that followed.
“The heartbreak of it when it ended touched the whole country,” Sikich said Sunday at the Thornhill Terry Fox Run. “I was no different, it left such an impression on me that he became a hero of mine.”
Sikich, the organizer of the Thornhill Terry Fox Run, was among the participants and volunteers who arrived early Sunday morning at Thornlea Secondary School. They are participating in the 36th annual Terry Fox Run which is held every year across Canada on the second Sunday after Labour Day.
