Annual international charity race

Annual charity running race in honour of youngster Terry Fox, who lost his leg to cancer. To raise money for medical treatment, in 1980 he went on a race across Canada, which he called the 'Marathon of Hope'. He ran for 143 days at 42 kilometres a day, but unfortunately, he was unable to finish because the illness returned and took his life at the age of 22. His family decided to continue the tradition and launched a campaign to raise money for cancer, which takes place every year in Canadian cities, organized by Canadian embassies and in 67 countries around the world, including this one in Croatia.
