The location where the cover photograph was taken.
Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope from April 12, 1980, when he dipped his artificial leg in the Atlantic ocean at St. John's, Newfoundland. His intention was to run across Canada and in doing so, raise money for cancer research. After 143 days it became apparent that the cancer which had started in his leg, had spread to his lungs and on September 1st, 1980 he had to abandon his run to seek further medical treatment. At that point he had run a total of 3339 kilometres. Terry Fox's fight against the cancer was unsuccessful and he succumbed to the disease on June 28th, 1981. In the 1982 version of the Official map, the Terry Fox Courage Highway - a section of the Trans-Canada highway running from Nipigon to Thunder Bay was added.
