Terry Fox...Great Canadian. Already having lost a leg to cancer, Terry Fox ran a good part of the way across Canada to earn money for cancer research.

Terry Fox. In 1980, Terry Fox decided to run across Canada to raise both awareness and money for cancer research. Terry accepted no money (for himself) and refused all corporate sponsorships. In total, he ran 3,339 miles over 143 days (basically, a marathon a day). Oh, did I forget to mention he had a prosthetic leg? To date, over 600 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry's name through the annual Terry Fox Run, held across Canada and around the world.

R.I.P Terry Fox. It's been 31 years since you left this world, but your legacy lives on :-) www.terryfox.org/
