According to Dictionary.com the definition of a hero is as follows - Hero-a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. These are the qualities that encompass the life of Terry Fox. His courage defined by a desire to run across one of the largest countries in the world that subjects its citizens to four relentless seasons. Despite losing his leg to cancer, his ability to run great distances, day in and day out, super exceeded those of his able bodied peers. In early September, in any Canadian city or town, it is not difficult to see the admiration this country has for Terry Fox.
