He was an ordinary teenager, purposeful and persistent. A couple of years of hard training and Terry became the best player. Next was University admission. Terry was going to be a sports trainer. Terry Fox was a good student and a strong athlete. The happy times stopped in March 1977. One day, Terry was running home. He stopped suddenly. “My right leg,” Terry said. The family took him to the hospital. Terry had cancer and there was only one answer. On March 9, the doctors operated. Three weeks later, Terry had an artificial leg. But this was only the beginning for him. Terry made a decision Terry met many sick children with amputated limbs and bald from chemotherapy in hospital. He could not understand why they were suffering. He wanted to help. He remembered a story about a man with one leg in the New York Marathon. Terry said to his friend Doug that he would run a marathon across Canada for money. Later, Terry talked about the marathon to his girlfriend, Rika. Doug and Rika were happy about it, but Terry’s mother said that it would be very difficult to run from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean on good leg. But Terry didn’t listen. The Marathon of Hope April 12, 1980 Terry dipped his right leg in the Atlantic Ocean and began his Marathon. Marathon of Hope. He had to run 3339 miles (5373 km) and reach the Pacific Ocean. He was escorted by a van that was driving his best friend. Terry decided to raise 24 million dollars - one dollar from every Canadian. Start of the Marathon was unsuccessful. It was raining. On the strange marathon almost no one paid attention. Running third of the distance, he raised a total of 200 000 dollars. In fact, a lot of money, but Terry was not satisfied. He was angry. It seemed to him that his idea had failed. One of the main features of outstanding people is perseverance. They do not give up. And Terry did not give up. More and more people enthusiastically watched him, someone joined, someone shook hands, someone interviewed. When Terry reached Ontario, he had already became a national hero. People donated money for cancer patients. A leg was still ill. Then he started coughing . Terry felt bad when he had run two-thirds of the route. The cancer had spread to the lungs. The marathon was stopped. It lasted 143 days. Terry had raised 1,400,000 dollars for sick children. On a big TV show, famous people said thank you to Canada’s hero. Terry watched from his bed and smiled. Terry Fox Run The first Terry Fox Run in Canada started in week three of September 1981. It brought 3,500,000 dollars to the fight with cancer. Today there are Terry Fox Runs around the world. In the same week in September every year, people run and remember «Canadian hero». Terry is dead, but his message is always with us: «Stop the pain.» My impressions This story impressed me deeply. Terry has shown how to overcome difficulties. We should never give up in different situations. I am convinced that the deed of Terry is an example of strength of mind, will and hope. I admire and follow the example of Terry.
