Terry Fox

Today was the day, that I was able to realize my lifelong goal to participate in a Terry Fox Run. I was so glad I was able to coerce a few of my buddies into joining me. Terry was such a inspiration and continues to be after all these years. It was a beautiful day and an important cause. I hope a cure for cancer is found in my lifetime. Wouldn't that be awesome!!!
Here we are just starting off..
Half way there....
And we made it...
And Terry's beautiful words (July 11, 1980)

"I'm not doing my run to become rich or famous. To me, being famous is not the idea of the run. The only important part is finding a cure for cancer. Don't forget that. I'm no different from any of you- I'm no better, no worse. You are cheering and clapping for me but if you have given $1, then you are part of the Marathon of Hope. Even if I don't finish, we need others to continue. It's got to keep going without me."
