Where can I get a t-shirt with Terry Fox’s face on it?

The Terry Fox Run 2022 t-shirts are produced by adidas, who also made the blue trainers Fox wore during his Marathon of Hope.

A campaign featuring Canadian celebrities wearing t-shirts with the face of Port Coquitlam hero Terry Fox was launched this month.

The Terry Fox Foundation recruited stars such as actress Rachel McAdams, singer Michael Bublé, hockey player Sidney Crosby and Port Coquitlam musician Tyler Shaw to don the limited-edition t-shirts designed by the Vancouver artist Douglas Coupland.

Coupland has close ties to the Fox family: not only did he write the book Terri, but he is also responsible for the series of statues that sprout in front of BC Place honoring his hometown hero.

Made from 100% cotton, the 2022 Terry Fox Run T-Shirt features a screen-printed portrait of Fox with “I’m Not a Quitter” written on the back or sleeve; the words are taken from Fox as he participated in his Marathon of Hope for cancer research in 1980.

Proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will further Fox’s dream of eradicating cancer. To date, the foundation in Fox’s name has raised more than $850 million over the past 42 years for cancer research.

“Terry was a cool guy who never gave up, and a world without him is unimaginable,” Coupland wrote in a press release.

“Look at that face: he’s not a quitter. You can feel his energy radiating from his photo like a beacon. He was one in a billion.

Some of the celebrities taking part in the t-shirt drive also wrote messages online to support the cause, as well as the Terry Fox Community Runs which take place on Sunday, September 18.

Here are some quotes:

  • Musician Alessia Cara“Every time I’ve done a Terry Fox run, I felt like I was part of something bigger than me. He impacted our country and so many people forever.
  • Author Margaret Atwood: “Terry Fox, a shining example of courage in the face of overwhelming odds!”
  • great hockey Daryl Sittler“Terry…forever my hero!” He continues to inspire me and others every day.
  • Olympian Penny Oleksiak“I first heard about Terry Fo in elementary school. I remember being very interested in his story as we were taught about his resilience and his passion for what he did. J’épais Terry represents what a true Canadian attitude and mentality is, which inspires me to push myself daily knowing how strong he was.
