Terry Fox was a Canadian athlete best known for his cross-Canada run, which he attempted after having one of his legs amputated. He started his impressive 5,342 kilometer (3,339 mile) journey in St. John's, and made it to Thunder Bay before he forced to stop because the cancer he had been fighting spread to his lungs. The Terry Fox Memorial and Lookout consists of a bronze sculpture of this inspirational man. The monument details the journey of this national hero and visitors can read about his inspirational life too. The lookout offers panoramic views of the entire city of Thunder Bay along with stunning views of Lake Superior.

Location:  1000 Highway 11/17
