True wit and sheer kindness would perhaps be the two adjectives that will fit perfectly to define the Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds. We all know for a fact that his inherent gift of perfect comic timing and flabbergasting rhetoric has played a major role in his success. And as soon as the Canada-based actor became successful enough, especially in terms of wealth, he never backed off from making donations every now and then.
From providing relief to the calamity-hit zones to providing food and shelter to the poor, both the Deadpool actor and his wife, Blake Lively have their names printed in the history of social work. In the same vogue, the 46-year-old, who earlier donated to a girls’ cancer fund, recently collaborated with Terry Fox Foundation to design their annual t-shirts and contribute as much as he can towards the better cause of Cancer treatment research.

When his ardent fans and followers apparently got to know about the team-up, the response was so overwhelming that the foundation had to immediately launch its first-ever pre-sale at shop.terryfox.org to facilitate pre-orders of the #DearTerry shirt. Notably, the piece of clothing celebrates the legacy of Terry who ran the Marathon of Hope back in 1990, by featuring the heartfelt messages he and his family have received over years.
Furthermore, Adidas is globally producing shirts with a wide range of varieties from short sleeves, to long sleeves, and even sportswear. “I’ve been taking part in the Terry Fox Run since second grade and can’t think of a more enduring and lovely legacy for one person,” Ryan Reynolds remarkably wrote in his Twitter post.

The Terry Foundation, a preeminent national nonprofit, is invested in paying homage to the iconic Canadian figure who ran thousands of miles to raise awareness and inspire millions in life and death. Notably, more than 20,000 volunteers and 3 million plus willing students participate in the fundraising event that takes place at thousands of different places across the country.
The foundation has already funded for over 1,300 groundbreaking cancer research projects and will continue to do so in the coming years. Moreover, Reynolds, who has been taking part in the camp ever since his second grade, is more than thrilled to provide his contribution. Lastly, the shirt will be officially launched on April 12, the day that marks Terry’s run, and all the proceedings will go to various research programs.
