This 8 storey high mural was recently completed along University Ave. It is a tribute to Terry Fox, the great Canadian hero, and his Marathon of Hope. He was a cancer survivor who set out in 1980 to run across the country with one artificial leg to raise money for cancer research. Unfortunately after 143 days and 5,373 km his cancer had returned and he was forced to stop. He died not long afterwards. Terry Fox runs take place each fall across the country and other places around the world and have raised millions of dollars for cancer research.
The artists for this one are Alexander Bacon and Que Rock along with a team of 20 others. 400 cans of spray paint were used.
