Terry is a biopic of Canadian amputee athlete Terry Fox, dramatizing his national Marathon of Hope run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. The film, produced by Shaftesbury Films, aired as a television movie on CTV in 2005. It was written by Dennis Foon and directed by Don McBrearty, and was created in part because the earlier 1983 film The Terry Fox Story had been criticized by Fox's family for inaccurately depicting his personality.
Shawn Ashmore portrays Fox. Unlike Eric Fryer, who previously portrayed Fox in The Terry Fox Story, Ashmore is not an amputee. For some scenes, a real amputee body double was used, while in others, digital editing was used to superimpose a prosthesis over Ashmore's real leg.
The film's cast also includes Matt Gordon as Fox's publicist Bill Vigars, Catherine Disher and David Huband as Fox's parents Betty and Rolly, and Noah Reid as his brother Darrell.
The film concludes with a mixed montage of footage of the actual Fox and the film version to the music of "Turnaround" by Stan Rogers.

Rounding out the half hour were famous and novelty-act figure skaters, vaudeville-type acts, and "affordable" non-skating celebrities at the b-list phase of their careers, such as Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz formerly of The Monkees, Eddie Mekka of Laverne & Shirley, and 1960s recording artist Donovan.
