Let's run with Terry Fox

29 Oct 2008: Finally, I've got the Terry Fox Run 2008 shirt today. I was so worried previously that I couldn't get the shirt before the run this coming Sunday. I know that the shirt is available for purchase on the spot, but you know, just to be safe that I have the right size for the shirt. Many thanks to Janice for getting me the shirt and not forgotten the guy who sent over the shirt to our office (Too bad that I've forgotten his name). I love this shirt the first time I saw it. It's nicely designed and the colours used are bright and sharp. Well done to the designer!!

A nice shirt without a gorgeous and hunky model is just like a nasi lemak without sambal, it's just imperfect. When I was so busy looking around for the perfect model, this hot little cupid flew down from heaven. And by looking at his eyes, I knew he is the one that I was looking for. Doesn't he look fabulous here with the shirt?

For those that will join the Terry Fox run this coming Sunday, hope to see you all there. Just drop by and say hi to me if you see me around. :)

Hey Chris

Here is a link regarding Terry Fox

"About Terry Fox
Terry Fox was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and raised in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, a community near Vancouver on Canada's west coast. An active teenager involved in many sports, Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee in 1977.

While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients, many of them young children, that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research.

He would call his journey the Marathon of Hope.

After 18 months and running over 5,000 kilometres (3,107 miles) to prepare, Terry started his run in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 12, 1980 with little fanfare. Although it was difficult to garner attention in the beginning, enthusiasm soon grew, and the money collected along his route began to mount. He ran 42 kilometres (26 miles) a day through Canada's Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario.

It was a journey that Canadians never forgot.

However, on September 1st, after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 miles), Terry was forced to stop running outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario because cancer had appeared in his lungs. An entire nation was stunned and saddened. Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at age 22.

The heroic Canadian was gone, but his legacy was just beginning.

To date, more than $400 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry's name through the annual Terry Fox Run, held across Canada and around the world. "
