He has been called “The British Forrest Gump.” Jamie McDonald ran 5000 miles across Canada and raised over $200,000 for charity. He ran the equivalent of 200 marathons in 275 days most of the time dressed as the comic book hero “The Flash”.
As a child Jamie suffered from several conditions and spent a lot of time in Hospitals. He plans on donating all the money that he has raised to different hospital charities.
“For me it was time to give back to the hospitals that helped me out as a kid.”
He is believed to be the first person to ever complete the epic journey from coast to coast without any support. Truly remarkable story!
