A photo of Terry Fox during his famous 1980 "Marathon of Hope" run across Canada.  Fox had lost his right leg to cancer three years earlier and began his run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. 

The caption on Wikipedia reads: "Photo taken July 12, 1980 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada by Jeremy Gilbert with his Praktika SLR 35 mm camera on Bloor Street East, near entrance to Castle Frank subway station, looking south-east towards Castle Frank Road as Fox heads west along Bloor Street."
