What with it being Terry Fox Day tomorrow, just thought that I'd make a thread......for those who don't know who Terry Fox is, he was a young man from BC who lost his leg to cancer. A while later, he secretly left his house, and began his goal: to run across Canada and back, even with his prosthetic leg, all to raise money for cancer. Eventually, word got out, and he became a national sensation. He was supported by his family, and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, on his way back, he was diagnosed with cancer again, and couldn't complete the trip. He died. However, with his death, he became something even more. He became a symbol of hope and mankind's spirit, willing to go through incredible feats to help their fellow man. Every 14th of September, all the schools in Canada run at least 3 KM and donate money to cancer.
So, just thought that I'd make a bit of a thread for a great hero.
