Which didn't make it in some of the ON-LINE historythingys....
Terry Fox started his cross Canada run on April 12 in St. John's Newfoundland (from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific Coast) for Cancer research, which was called "Marathon of Hope", (at the time he had hoped to raise one dollar for each of the 24 million Canadians).
To date there has been just about 500 millions dollars raised.
I guess this information didn't make it into ON-LINE history... I should have googled "Canada's HEROES" instead.
