Adidas Canada has unveiled limited-edition Terry Fox collection that includes limited-edition Orion shoes and a commemorative T-shirt to mark the 40th anniversary of the legendary Canadian’s Marathon of Hope.
The Orion running shoe features the words ‘Terry Fox’ written on the side and comes with commemorative shoelaces that have a “famous” quote from the legendary Canadian.
The shoe box’s tissue paper displays a printed with a copy of Terry’s original letter to Adidas.
The limited-edition nine-piece collection of Terry Fox merchandise, including the replica Orion sneakers, is available for purchase starting tomorrow.
All net proceeds will be donated to the Terry Fox Foundation, which raises money for cancer research.
“The Foundation is honoured that Adidas Canada continues their support with such an incredible initiative,” Ara Sahakian, the foundation’s interim executive director, said in a press release. “Forty years after Terry’s run, the Fox family and Adidas have given Canadians the exciting opportunity to not only own something that speaks to the best in all of us but to also support Terry’s mission to find a cure for all cancers.”
Fox wore Adidas Orion sneakers after the company donated him a handful of pairs for his Marathon of Hope 40 years ago.
