33 years ago today, Terry Fox dipped his artificial leg in the Atlantic Ocean and started his Marathon of Hope. He filled two plastic bottles with water - one for a souvenir, and another he hoped to pour into the Pacific at the end of his journey.
At the time, Terry Fox hoped to raise 24 million dollars - one dollar for every Canadian in 1980. As of today, over $500 million has been raised and is run throughout countries in North America, South America, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
