Amelia for Marathon of Hope

CBC Television (Canada) will be creating a program which would illustrate in detail what Terry accomplished in 1980. The event will reacquaint new and existing generations with Terry's example of athleticism, determination and self-sacrifice. To learn more about Terry's inspiring journey, please visit

A team of twelve runners will start the marathon in St. John's, NFLD on April 12th. Each participant will attempt to run 3,339 miles in 143 days - matching Terry's daily mileage - arriving in Thunder Bay, ON on Labour Day weekend. CBC TV camera crews will document the journey from the first day of training through to the end of the run, providing viewers with updates on the participants and their fundraising efforts.

CBC TV is calling for ideal candidates who possess the following for the program:

1) They have been inspired by Terry's story and have a history of supporting Terry's vision and principles

2) They have the ability and willingness to fundraise

3) They believe and offer evidence that they are capable of physically attempting the run

4) They are willing and able to put aside work/other commitments for 4 and a half months to document their personal journey.

Do you have what it takes to go the distance?

Amelia thinks she does.

Here's her YouTube submission to be considered for the program.

Good luck Amelia! We will support you all the way!
