Terry Fox’s Econoline van restored for cross-Canada tour – May 23, 2008

The 1980 Econoline Ford van that served as Terry Fox’s home – and the movable headquarters for his Marathon of Hope – has been restored for a cross-Canada tour.

The van that crept along the roadways of eastern Canada behind Fox for 143 days was shown off at Ford’s Canadian headquarters in Oakville, Ont., on Thursday for the first time since it was found and acquired by the Terry Fox Foundation.

The foundation plans to use the newly restored van to once again share Fox’s goal of raising funds to fight cancer with a cross-Canada tour starting May 25 in St. John’s.
