End of the line – Thunder Bay

I was working in Thunder Bay for Ontario Hydro and I remember being so excited about Terry Fox getting close to Thunder Bay on his cross Canada marathon. I was working in construction and a large group of us organized a cheering crew for when he arrived in the City. This did not happen and his run was terminated due to his health issues. We did not understand at the time the magnitude of his health problems and felt sad that his Marathon was cut short after performing a tremendous effort and courage in running all those miles from the east coast. We found out that Terry was flying out of Thunder Bay so we our construction team gathered at the airport to give him a farewell..I will always remember this event…
