There is no disputing Terry Fox is a Canadian hero. His self sacrifice and dedication to his cause are among the most compelling stories in Canadian history. The Marathon of Hope was aptly named as, for the first time, the millions of people diagnosed and living with cancer actually had hope in their lives, and Terry was responsible for that. But few people know the real story of how the Marathon of Hope came to be and that it almost never happened.
The Man Behind the Marathons: How Ron Calhoun Helped Terry Fox and Other Heroes Make Millions for Charity by Canadian author, Elaine Cougler, is the compelling story of a man who lived his life in the service of all Canadians, selflessly committing himself to managing the incredible marathons of Terry Fox, Steve Fonyo, Ken McColm and John Davidson. It is a behind-the-scenes look at these incredible people, their sacrifices, and what it took to raise millions in their names and for their causes, thereby giving hope to countless others.
In celebration of Dr. Calhoun, Terry, and the others, the first one thousand families to register for Sports Discovery Camp (SDC) will receive a free copy of the book which, for the first time ever, tells the real story behind these heroic endeavours from the man that made them happen. 👍🎁😊
