Charity takes many forms - The Globe and Mail

Charity takes many forms - The Globe and Mail: Curtis Hargrove owes Quebec police a debt of gratitude: The arrest of the Alberta marathoner after he refused to remove himself from the Trans-Canada Highway has brought national attention to his campaign to raise $1-million for the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton. On Sunday, the 44th day of his cross-Canada run, Mr. Hargrove was warned by police to get off the controlled-access highway; he refused and only got out of jail after he promised to use an alternative route. He has raised only $14,000 to date, but if online outrage over his arrest is any indication, he can expect a lot more soon.
