Starting April 12, Terry Fox fans and supporters can purchase a limited-edition T-shirt at terryfox.org and register to join the annual run.

All proceeds support cancer research in Canada.

The T-shirts, produced by Adidas, are available in a variety of sizes and styles.

The shirt features a dot-screened portrait of Terry and the words “I’m Not a Quitter” printed on the sleeve or back, inspired by a quote from Terry in 1980, “Nobody is ever going to call me a quitter.”

Terry’s brother, Fred Fox, says the run is as important as it ever was.

“More and more people are engaged in what Terry started. There are new generations involved,” Fox said. “The last few years have been different but there is still the need for cancer research.”

To mark the launch of the T-shirt, the Terry Fox Foundation partnered with a mix of Canadians across music, film, television, fashion and sports, including Alessia Cara, Catherine O’Hara, Catherine Reitman, Darryl Sittler, Josh Trager, Margaret Atwood, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Michael Bublé, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, Penny Oleksiak, Perdita Felicien, Rachel McAdams, Rick Mercer, Ryland James, Sarah McLachlan, Sidney Crosby, Tessa Virtue, Tom Cochrane Tyler McGregor and Tyler Shaw.

Terry was diagnosed with cancer in 1977 and his leg was amputated.

He started his Marathon of Hope in April 1980 in St. John’s, N.L., with a goal of running to the Pacific.

He ran for 143 days and covered 5,373 km but was forced to halt his run in Thunder Bay due to his illness.

Terry died on June 28, 1981.
