What Was The Person Involved in That Made Them a Leader?
Following Terry Fox's "Marathon of Hope" as he wanted to run across Canada to raise awareness for cancer research. Rick Hansen felt the urge to do the same for people with disabilities, but unlike Terry, his plan was to go around the world.
He began his well renowned journey on March 21st 1985 from Vancouver and he travelled over 40,000 kms through 34 countries on four continents before reaching Canada. He returned back to Canada on May 22nd 1987 after the course of 26 months and raised over $26 million for spinal cord research.
What Actions Did the Individual Take to Show Leadership?
It took a lot of courage for someone who went through so much at such an early stage of his life to do something that a lot of people around the world are dealing with. He knew that what he felt during his life, other people also felt the same and he wanted to do something about it, and hence he founded the "Man in Motion World Tour".
