Intrigued by Terry’s Determination

I was a 13 Year Old boy living in Baker Lake (N.W.T. at the time, now Nunavut)
The only way to see Terry was through tv. I would sit intently in front of the tv watching CBC National and see where he was on the map. I remember feeling so heart broken when he went to the hospital and than announcing that he had to stop.
He inspired the whole community to do a run of there own to raise money for Cancer.
It’s hard to believe that it’s about Forty Years now since Terry inspired a whole Nation and brought everyone closer together probably even more so than winning the Stanley Cup.
