Christopher Aaron Knox was born on Sept 14, 1983 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan and soon moved to Regina, where he attended Ruth Pawson School.

Growing up, Christopher was a very focused athlete and very competitive; he loved playing soccer, baseball and basketball. Even though he was smaller than most of his teammates, he had a very determined heart. When Christopher began high school at Robert Usher his focus became football. He played for both the Regina Minor Football League and for his school. In addition to sports, he was involved in school plays, choir, played the trumpet in the school band, and was an eager boy scout, obtaining every badge possible.

Christopher had a passion for life and an infectious spirit that lives on in everyone fortunate enough to have met him. It was this heart, passion and spirit during his battle with cancer that inspired the Chris Knox Foundation. This charity will help children and young adults (up to the age of 30), to attend sporting, fine arts, and cultural events during treatment, giving them a much-deserved reprieve and creating some happy memories with their families.
