Terry Fox Monument

The nine-foot-high bronze statue is set on a 45-ton granite base, with a foundation of local amethyst. The statue was designed and sculpted by Manfred of Oakville, who was moved by Terry's determination. 

The monument depicts the provincial and territorial coats-of-arms and the Canadian emblems, the maple leaf and beaver, for the monument attempts to show how Terry himself, through his strength and commitment, "united Canadians as they had never been united before." An inscription on the monument states that Terrance Stanley Fox (1958 - 1981) "inspired an entire generation of Canadians with his determination and devotion."
