Terry Fox

The first reason we admire Terry Fox for his honesty is because while he was running he lost track of where he last left off and he was honest about his actions because he went back to a familiar spot and ran it over again. He didn't want anyone to ever think that he didn't run the full length. Terry Fox was also very honest to all the children he visited along his journey. He told every kid with Cancer, that it was going to be okay and they should not worry. Terry gave his respect and honesty to all the children while he ran across Canada saving their lives.
