Terry Fox (centre) was accompanied by his brother Darrell Fox (left) and Doug Alward (right), the project co-ordinator and driver of the van that followed Terry during his 1980 Marathon of Hope. An article was written about their visit to Quebec by QCT reporter Keith Elias. Scott Kingsland, who took the photo, recalls that it was taken somewhere in Lévis.

While digging through some old, mostly black-and-white, photos in the QCT archives, we came across this photo of Terry Fox with his brother Darryl and friend Doug Alward. The picture was taken in Lévis on June 15, 1980, when Fox made a stop there during his attempted cross-Canada Marathon of Hope for cancer research.
