One of the temporary exhibits at the Museum of History at the moment deals with Terry Fox, the Canadian who lost a leg to cancer, and set out on what became the Marathon of Hope, a crossing of Canada from east to west in 1980. Running an average of 42 kilometres (26 miles) each day, he captured the attention of Canadians. His journey ended east of Thunder Bay as the cancer that had taken his leg had returned and spread to his lungs. He died the following year. The exhibition space here is filled with images of the Marathon of Hope, shirts, shoes, and socks Terry wore, both his regular and spare artificial legs, the support van driven during the journey by a friend and Terry's brother, Terry's journal, and examples of the outpouring of support from the public he got during the run and in the months afterwards.
