Canadian boy dressing up as Terry Fox for Halloween wants donations instead of candy
One little boy in Newfoundland will not be going door-to-door trick-or-treating for candy like the rest of his peers on Halloween, but will instead be soliciting donations for charity.
Selfless seven-year-old Ethan Smallwood, who lives in the town of Clarke's Beach, has with his mother created a very convincing Terry Fox costume to help raise nearly $12,00o and counting for cancer research.
"This year for Halloween, I’m being my hero, Terry Fox," Smallwood says in a fundraising video before thanking donors for their support.
Ethan apparently became obsessed with Terry Fox after learning about him during his school's Terry Fox Run, and has been collecting books and other memorabilia related to the Canadian legend ever since.
According to the CBC, he's even written his own comic book about his hero.
Though Ethan has already well-surpassed his initial $200 fundraising goal, here's hoping people continue to donate to his fantastic cause.
