Terry Fox- Marathon Of Hope

After Terry lost his right leg to cancer in 1977 he decided that, if he was going to go on living, he was going to change something, that he was going to make a difference. So in 1980, he began the Marathon of Hope—He would run 26 miles per day, his goal was to try to raise money and awareness for cancer research by running all the way across Canada. After 143 days and 3,339 miles his cancer spread to his lungs so he had to quit his Marathon of Hope – but not before he became a national hero whose name is as well-known as Wayne Gretzky, he managed to inspire an entire country. Definitely one of the best inspirational stories ever.
