The run was initiated by Terry Fox, who was diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of 18. The Canadian had his right leg amputated and was moved by the suffering of cancer patients he saw while he was in the hospital and decided to embarked on a journey he called the Marathon of Hope to raise money for cancer research.
Terry ran a marathon (42km) a day for 143 consecutive days before he was forced to abandon it when the cancer spread to his lungs. He passed away at the age of 21.
