In this commentary, Perry Newman, President of Atlantica Group LLC, discusses the importance of celebrating the Canadian values of courage, character and compassion. Newman highlights the efforts of Canadian icon Terry Fox, in light of his mother, Betty Fox passing away.
Indeed, the Terry Fox story is one so moving and in its way so emblematic of what is right about Canada – its humility, its generosity, its ability to punch above its weight – that it more than bears retelling. Newman tells the story of Terry Fox’s historic Marathon of Hope across Canada. Today, Terry Fox Runs take place around the world, and the Terry Fox Foundation has raised more than $500 million for cancer research.
In Celebrating something even greater than the Stanley Cup, Newman shares the story of an inspiring Canadian and how his journey reflects the Canadian values that we celebrate today.
