The Douglas Coupland-designed tee features a photograph of the Canadian hero, who lost his leg to osteogenic sarcoma at age 18 and succumbed to the disease four years later. It bears the words "I am not a quitter." That's a nod to Terry's famous mantra, "Nobody is ever going to call me a quitter."

"Higher" singer Michael, 46 – whose eldest son, eight-year-old Noah, overcame cancer after being diagnosed at age three – honoured Terry's inspiring legacy.
"At some point in our lives, each of us will be required to reach deep into ourselves and hope we can find the strength within to take one more step like Terry did," the superstar said.

Terry's Marathon of Hope raised $1.7 million – nearly $6 million today – for cancer research in 1980.
Terry, who was a long-time runner and basketball player when he was in high school, started running across Canada in 1980 to fundraise for cancer research. Although he sadly passed away at just 22 years of age, he has gone on to become an iconic figure in Canada. The Terry Fox Run, organized in his memory, has become an international event that has raised more than $800 million for cancer research in more than 60 countries.
