In our latest episode of The Leadership Standard podcast, host Gair Maxwell sits down with Darrell Fox, Senior Advisor at the Terry Fox Research Institute and younger brother of Terry Fox.

It was on April 12th, 1980, that Terry dipped his artificial leg into the Atlantic Ocean and proceeded to unite Canadians in a way never before, nor since, seen. When Darrell turned 17, he joined his brother Terry and his best friend Doug Alward on his Marathon of Hope in Saint John, New Brunswick.
