Terry Fox

Coco just showed me this drawing and story she wrote.
She's had some issues this week when learning about the great Canadian hero Terry Fox.
Terry fought cancer and did his best to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research.  For those who don't know, he didn't make it, but created an amazing legacy.
Cordelia's problem was that when everyone went for a run on Terry Fox day, she thought they were actually going to run across Canada.  She did her best to make excuses not go on the run or go to school that day.  She explained later in evening that she only walked when others in fact ran, so that she'd be sure not to get too far from home.
One night there was a boy that ran all the way across Canada, it was Terry Fox.

One day there was a fox, he ate a fish.
