Octagon House

Andy | Thursday, September 29, 2022 | Best Blogger Tips
Located in Bowmanville, Ontario, the Octagon was built in 1864 by the trustees of the Congregational Church as a parsonage for Reverend and Mrs. Thomas Reikie. By 1900 the congregation had declined and the house was sold to photographer, Henry Tait. Five years later Henry sold the house to his brother Archie, a well known grocer who was a Councilor for many years and then a Mayor from 1905-1906.

Terry Fox And The Marathon Of Hope

Andy | Sunday, September 18, 2022 | Best Blogger Tips

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 close to 42 kilometres (26 miles) a day through Canada's Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario.

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 the age 22. The heroic Canadian was gone, but his legacy was just beginning.
