Weekend Inspiration

Today I am sharing with you not only an inspirational quote, but a recommendation for an amazing documentary that I watched tonight, Into the Wind.

If you’re never heard of Terry Fox, he is a Canadian legend.  In 1977 at not even 20 years old Fox lost his leg to cancer.  3 years later he set out to run across Canada in an effort to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.

Terry Fox QuoteIf you haven’t seen Into the Wind I highly recommend it, Terry’s journey in his Marathon of Hope is amazingly inspirational and The Terry Fox Foundation is still very active in Canada and to-date has raised over $600 million for cancer research.

**This movie is available on Netflix if you decide to look for it!

I’m really into running movies recently, any suggestions or favorites??

  2. That’s amazing. I will definitely have to look into it.
    I’m a fan of Run for Your Life, the documentary about Fred Lebow and how the NYCM came to be.
