On the 12th of August 2007, Curtis Hargrove, age 18, left Cold Lake, Alberta on a marathon run which lasted for 34 days. His journey ended in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia on the 14 September 2007. He accomplished this amazing feat by running approximately 42 kilometers a day for a total of 1,450 kilometers.

On his arrival in Port Coquitlam he had his head shaved and on the 16th day of September 2007 took part in the Annual Terry Fox run. It was Curtis’s goal to raise $50,000 for cancer research and to continue the legacy established by the famous Terry Fox.

Curtis is to be highly commended on his inspiration, his outstanding dedication and perseverance to accomplish this incredible run, a feat that very few will be able to imitate.
