The journey began 36 years ago and the most recent stop is the museum in the heart of kidina.
In 1980, Darrell Fox drove a support vehicle as his brother Terry set foot on the crossroads.
Raising money for cancer research and becoming a national hero is a lasting symbol of courage and determination.
The story of Terry Fox and his hope marathon was so tightly woven into the fabric of the country that people lined up for hours and had the opportunity to shake hands with his brother and get his signature, take a photo and talk for a few minutes about Terry\'s impact on their lives.
Darrell held an exhibition at the museum on Saturday called \"Terry Fox: running to the heart of Canada.
\"In a brief introduction to his brother Terry and some of the projects in the exhibition, tears welled up in the eyes of the audience.
A few years ago, Gatineau\'s Museum of Canadian History approached the Fox family to assemble Terry\'s personal belongings and souvenirs related to the Hope marathon.
Including Terry\'s artificial limb, which is covered with dry blood from young people.
More than 200,000 people visited the Gatineau exhibition, which now lasts until June 16.
Jean-\"This is an amazing show where visitors come out with a lot of emotion
Mark Bly, curator of the Canadian Museum of History, said.
Darrell Fox, 17, in 1980, watched his brother cross the windshield of the Ford van as Terry ran 40 to 50 kilometers a day in the hope marathon.
\"I have witnessed something historic, and I have also witnessed the reaction of others to this incident, watching Canadians on the side of the road be affected by what Terry has done, darrell said in an interview on Saturday.
\"I don\'t want it to end;
That\'s great.
\"In many ways, hopefully the marathon is never over.
Terry Fox raised $24 million for cancer research in 1980.
Since then, his annual run in communities across Canada has raised $0. 7 billion.
When Lisa Hood heard that Darrell Fox was in kidina, she went to the museum and waited in line for more than an hour. With her six-month-
Lisa tied her son Patrick to her chest and her husband Jeff stood by her side and told Darrell about her family\'s connection to the annual run.
\"My mom knew she was pregnant with me before Terry Fox ran,\" Lisa said . \".
Her mother took part in the activity that year.
Lisa was pregnant with Patrick for nearly nine months in last September.
\"In a way, shape or form, I do this every year in my life,\" Lisa said . \".
It was a family tradition when she grew up and she wanted her son and husband to continue to do so.
\"I didn\'t see all the items in the exhibition, but I \'ve been to zero miles and I \'ve been to Ray Bay where he was forced out,\" Lisa said . \".
Terry began running in April 12, 1980, immersing his prosthetic leg in the Atlantic Ocean off the Bay of New York state. L.
For three months, he ran 5,373 kilometers a day.
He runs a marathon every day.
When Terry entered Ontario, he was already an international story, and more than 100,000 people greeted him in Toronto.
Chest pain forced him to stop near Lei Wan. 1.
The cancer spread to his lungs and he died in July 1981. He was 22.
His story inspired a film starring Robert Duval, with books, documentaries, countless articles and a large number of volunteers organizing an annual fundraising event in his memory.
But this exhibition is Terry\'s item, including many personal items such as his diary, which was assembled in one place for the first time.
Darrell\'s collaboration with the Terry Fox Foundation, as well as the current exhibition, is a constant reminder of his losses.
Terry died at the age of 18.
Their father died of lung cancer in February.
\"It\'s always difficult to deal with losses, especially when you revisit them every day, but it\'s also part of the healing process,\" Darrell said in an interview . \".
\"I always feel lucky because I am able to communicate and share my story, but it is not easy,\" Darrell said . \".
\"I feel fortunate that I have this opportunity to be part of this incredible story that continues to push people in 36 years.
\"When the Canadian Museum of History approached the Fox family to create a decisive exhibition about Terry and the Hope marathon, their family stopped to think about it.
\"Mom is very protective of items and more personal items.
That\'s why they were locked up in the house.
For example, water bottles, Terry\'s diaries, they are always at home, \"Darrell said.
Canadians sent news clippings, support letters, postcards, personal stories fighting cancer, donations and many other items to B\'s Fox FamilyC.
When Terry was running
Therefore, the family began to believe that the exhibition belongs not only to the family but also to Canadians.
The exhibition will travel to Winnipeg and Victoria later this year.
The Fox family hopes to find a permanent place for it.
\"So we want to have a place equal to Terry\'s memorabilia, but also focus on cancer research to show Canadians how far we have come and what we have achieved, Darrell said.
On Saturday afternoon, among those waiting for nearly two hours to speak to Darrell, David Picard, a resident of Guelph, organized Terry Fox running in that city.
\"I have been running for Terry Fox since 1983.
\"In fact, it was Terry Fox running that made me run for the first time,\" Picard said . \".
Picard accompanied Darrell on a visit to Guelph a few years ago.
Darrell is talking to students at the local school.
They went to 10-
Run together in kilometers
\"It\'s very memorable,\" Picard said . \"
\"It\'s exciting to go out and run with Darrell Fox.
\"On Saturday, after two hours of shaking hands and chatting, Darrell took a drink from a water bottle.
For a long time after his brother\'s death, Darrell was always surrounded by his memory.
\"It\'s part of my life.
Just like I have two identities.
I\'m Darrell Fox. I\'m Terry Fox\'s brother.
\"I am comfortable no matter who it is,\" Darrell said . \".
\"So I like to play the role and be someone who can talk to someone who has his own Terry Fox Story and shares his experiences.
\"That\'s what happened today, and I\'m full of it, and I\'m lucky to have this incredible opportunity,\" Darrell said . \".
