Be the first to witness the development of a new folk musical about one of Canada’s enduring heroes. The Canadian Music Theatre Project presents MARATHON OF HOPE, based on the incredible true story of Terry Fox. In the summer of 1980, Terry ran across Canada, a marathon every day to raise money for cancer research and captured the heart of the nation in the process. After 143 days, Terry was forced to end his run when his cancer returned. He passed away on June 28, 1981 at 22 years of age.

See a professional cast of actors, in our “theatrical laboratory”, develop this exciting new work. MARATHON OF HOPE is presented in collaboration with the family of Terry Fox.
