"Sorcha" informed me that this is Terry Fox. I know of him. I was in High school when he made his famous run. At the time I was running track and cross country so he was especially inspiring.
Terry Fox lost his leg to cancer when he was a teenager. He decided to run across Canada to raise funds for cancer research. Fox ran 28-30 miles per day on one real leg and one artificial leg.
Halfway across, outside Thunder Bay Ontario, the cancer spread to his lungs. A few months later he died. To this day, every first weekend in September there is a Terry Fox Run. There is also a mountain named after him in the Canadian Rockies and a huge memorial to him outside Thunder Bay."
