All Things Terry

On display through summer 2024

For 44 years, Terry Fox has been an inspiration to Canadians and the world alike. In April 2024, the Royal BC Museum entered into a 20-year loan agreement with the Terry Fox Centre and the Fox family to safeguard, manage and preserve the legacy and personal belongings of Terry Fox.

The van and a series of informational panels are on display in the Royal BC Museum lobby, now through the summer.

The collection includes a number of iconic items owned and worn by Terry, including the shoes and prosthetic leg he wore on his daily marathons, the van he and his best friend/driver Doug and younger brother Darrell slept in throughout the journey, and a large collection of letters written to Terry from school children across the country.
