Review of Terry Fox Monument

Terry Fox Monument
Ranked #1 of 65 things to do in Thunder Bay

Attraction details
Reviewed 12 December 2013

If you ever find yourself traveling across Canada (there is only one road thru Thunder Bay) stopping at the Terry Fox Monument is a must see. Terry Fox is a true Canadian hero of the modern era. Terry Fox selflessly continued his journey across Canada while cancer was consuming his body. A larger than life bronze statue of Terry Fox has been erected on a cliff overlooking Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant for people to stop and see the statue, look thru the statue at awe inspiring view and contemplate life before they continue their own journey.

This place is like a place to stop for a washroom break and to walk and stretch when you are driving accross canada. It is very nice and clean. The secenery is very nice and there is a statue of Terry Fox where you look over Lake Superior. It is worth the look.

Any visitors that come to Thunder Bay we take to Terry Fox Lookout. Its located at a tourist information center on a rock ridge that overlooks the Sleeping Giant and Terry Fox's face shows the pain and the tears of what he must have felt when he was forced to stop his run due to the cancer returning. This is an inspirational stop for any cancer survivor and to see how much this young man has contributed to cancer research financially and spiritually

Not only does a visit to the monument connect you to a great Canadian , Terry Fox , but the view from the monument is spectacular . One gets one of the best views of the Sleeping Giant that is available . There is also a very good information centre located at the lookout which can provide many other high points of the area .
