About This Year's Design:

The Fox Family are proud Canadians. Like many families, they wanted to research their heritage and discovered their Métis lineage on the Gladue side of the family (Betty Fox's mom was Marian Gladue). To honour this history, the family liaised with Métis Nation BC to create the 2021 Terry Fox Run t-shirt.

The design celebrates Terry’s heritage, with illustrations of traditional Métis floral beading created by Métis artistMal Blondeau (the Métis are known as the Flower Beadwork People.) The flowers chosen honour the land where Terry's ancestors lived: the prairie crocus of Manitoba and the wild prairie rose of North Dakota. The Foundation’s mission - to fund cancer research - is written in English, French and the Métis traditional language of Michif, as is the phrase “Try Like Terry”, in honour of his remarkable effort. The back of the shirt includes a mouse track beadwork border with the Métis infinity symbol.
