“Beautiful Spot”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

It gave us pause to remember someone with such courage. The monument to Terry Fox has been placed in a park setting looking out onto Lake Superior. I'm glad we went to see it.

“Inspirational”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

The monument is a rest stop/info center and there's a huge statue of Terry Fox that overlooks the highway and a great view of the Sleeping Giant. I remember the story of him but it was good to be reminded of what he did.

“Great Tribute to an Outstanding Young Man!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Located on the Trans Can Hwy, just before you enter the city of Thunder Bay, ON. What a fitting monument to such a brave and courageous cancer survivor/victim. It stands sooo tall, just as he did every day, as he faught his battle and shows his great strides to collect funds to further cancer research. The town's people errected this monument within a tourist picnic area and information center, high above a lookout point, overlooking the city and the great Lake Superior. Spectacular view! Don't miss it!
