When creators of the Terry Fox mural in Brookfield included his quote “It’s got to keep going without me,” this isn’t what they had in mind. Sometime Friday night, vandals tore the full-body decal depicting Fox running from the painted mural, leaving the community sickened by the act, especially since it came just days before the 30th anniversary of his legendary Marathon of Hope.
“I’m very emotional about it,” said Jackie Burnett, a member of the Brookfield and Area Terry Fox Committee.
