However, with the progression of his cancer, he was eventually forced to stop after 143 grueling days of running across more than 1/3 of Canadas vast expanse (5,373 kilometers). The run, coupled with the spread of his cancer, may have ultimately cost him his life, but he left an undying legacy and became Canadas hero.
