Description
The Canadian Association of New York and the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research (New York) are delighted to announce that ESPN will be airing a documentary of the Terry Fox story as part of its "30 for 30" series. Two-time NBA MVP, proud Canadian, and first-time filmmaker Steve Nash will share Terry Fox’s incredible story of perseverance and hope with his new film "Into the Wind" which will air on:

ESPN - September 28, 2010 at 8:00 pm
ESPN2 - September 28, 2010 at 11:00 pm

The film is expected to air several times after this date.

"I remember being a six-year-old boy and waking up every morning and rushing to the TV to see where Terry was that day. To see him running or hobbling across our country for the spirit of community and looking out for others was something that has stuck with me ever since. To see his face hiding the pain and to hear his words disguising the sacrifice was as motivating and as educational an experience as I’ve ever had. To be able to tell this story again, to Americans who love an underdog and a story of overcoming and struggle, is something any new filmmaker would love." - Steve Nash
