My mom Audrey Bilton kept talking about a young man by the name of Terry Fox, Marathon of Hope, she wanted to make him something special – so she made a little ceramic book with gold writing on it, she was thrilled that he would be coming through our small hometown of Rockwood. My fiance and I Joe Chisholm seen him running on Highway 7 from Guelph heading towards Rockwood, so I let my Mom know he was coming.
I still remember his courage and determination as he ran down the highway. So much pride, his image is still burned into our memories today.
