Robert: Ryan Reynolds designs new Terry Fox shirt
Written by Robert Shawn on February 28, 2023
Ahead of the 2023 Terry Fox Run, the Terry Fox Foundation has launched a limited-edition shirt designed, in part, by Ryan Reynolds.
A product of a collaborative effort with the Fox family, the shirt features messages Terry and his family have received over the years and is meant to celebrate the legacy of the Fox’s Marathon of Hope and how he continues to inspire people to this day.
“I’ve been taking part in the Terry Fox Run since second grade and can’t think of a more enduring and lovely legacy for one person,” says Ryan Reynolds. “Terry Fox inspired millions in life and death.”
“We are thrilled and incredibly grateful for Ryan’s continued support of the Terry Fox Foundation and for his collaboration on this special project,” says Vice President of Marketing & Communications for the Terry Fox Foundation, Denise Dias. “The initial response from the public has been overwhelming with more than 5,373 pre-orders in the first 24 hours, the same number of kilometres Terry ran. We look forward to the official launch of the Terry Fox Run in April.”
The 2023 #DearTerry shirts are available for pre-order, and will officially launch on April 12th, the same day Terry began his Marathon of Hope. Proceeds will support cancer research in Canada.
Canadians can begin registering for the 2023 Terry Fox Run on April 12th. Information on registration and #DearTerry shirt pre-orders can be found at www.terryfox.org.
