Does anyone do anything Terry Fox related?

For those of you who don't know who he is, he's a famous Canadian hero who, quote end quote, "everybody knows" *waggles fingers*. He had cancer in his leg, and had to get it amputated. In rehab, he saw many cancer patients around him who were suffering the same pain as him. He then decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research, and, quote end quote, "end the suffering" *waggles fingers*. He started at Newfoundland and Labrador, and began his run along the TransCanada Highway. And everyone knows it's cold in Canada, but he still would never wear sweats, because he wanted everyone to see his fake leg. He wanted everyone to know the suffering of cancer patients. Unfortunately he was not able to complete his dream, the cancer had spread to his chest and he died at Thunder Bay. But many Canadians pledged money when they saw him running, and raised over two million dollars (or something like that).

Annually, people all over Canada run 2 km to help Terry and his dream of eliminating the pain of cancer. At school we have this thing called the Terry Fox Run [which was today!] where we run/walk 2 km.

Terry Fox is known worldwide. He's one of the people, quote end quote, "everybody knows" *waggles fingers*. So if you do a Terry Fox Run, or have ever pledged money, or maybe have even heard of him, you can post here.

I've never heard of him until now, I looked him up. And I admit, he is a brave man. that's just incredible. He just inspired me, I myself as a track athlete find this very... amazing. Running on only one leg, across Canada for cancer research... Wow, I love his dedication. It's a shame he didn't get to finish though. Now, I regret missing cross country try outs.
