    • Synopsis
    • While his mother faced surgery after surgery due to Cancer, Scott was awakened to the monumental achievement of Terry Fox. A hobbyist runner himself and able-bodied to boot, Scott felt called to do something to bring a message of hope to a younger demographic. At 23, he concluded that running across the country would be an inspiring national reminder of the way in which we are all touched by Cancer. And a hope that we can find a cure, once and for all.
      During his journey, 92,400 Canadians would be diagnosed with Cancer and another 550,000 wouldn't see Scott finish. These are startling statistics that, for Scott, made his journey all the more important.
      It would require he run more than 200 consecutive marathons and well over 8000 total kilometres. But no amount of training could prepare him for the emotional and challenging journey that lay ahead.
