Cross-Canada Tour

Following the footsteps of his childhood hero

Terry Fox (World record of 13 225km)

Just like Terry Fox, who tried to cross the country from one coast to the other, running on his artificial leg, in the scope of his Marathon of Hope in 1980, to raise money for cancer research, Steve has gone through his own crossing of Canada. From April to December 2015, he has covered a distance of about 13 225 km, from Victoria (B.C.) to St. John’s (Newfoundland). He has achieved this significant accomplishment using 12 different sports disciplines, as selected by the kids: on foot (walking and running), on a bike (road bike and mountain bike), on a scooter, on a pogo-stick, on rollerblades, on cross-country skis, on snowshoes and on longboard, and of course not forgetting the stretches of road covered while using a wheelchair and a bike for disabled people. Steve will give us a detailed account of his journey and the multiple difficulties he encountered on his trip. He will point out in passing the importance of team work and of careful preparation.
