The word hero is over used these days because there is a difference between hero and role model. Many people say some one is my hero but that person is not really a hero. A hero is some one who helps people every day who put his/her needs aside to help others in need.

Many people are considered heroes because they help people every day. But not all heroes help people some raise money to give to organization that help home less people. Or they donate the money to help cure cancer. Like Terry fox did. Terry fox wanted to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He did this because he had cancer in his right leg. Every September people take part in the run to raise money for cancer this is Canada’s biggest fund raiser for cancer.
