Altruism + Community

_A17_379375.jpg“It almost hurts me to walk down a road and have people grab my hand and ask for my autograph and not sit and talk. When I’m finished I’m not going to be on the front page, but I’m going to be just as happy without the publicity.”

–          Terry Fox

I expect that each year now, when I do the Terry Fox Run, I will have a longer list of people who have battled cancer since last year’s run.

When I think about character, I think about altruism and selflessness. Giving matters, but building community does too. When those two intersect, we see some real synergy.
