Preventive Officiating author Randy Vogt is American but his personal hero is Canadian marathon runner Terry Fox. Randy vacationed in Canada during the summer of 1980 when Terry ran his Marathon of Hope.
When Randy had the great honor of carrying the Olympic torch for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, he did it with Terry's photo in his right sock. Although Randy is not a marathon runner, he has officiated a marathon of soccer games––over 9,000––since 1978.
He is very pleased to donate a small portion of every Preventive Officiating purchase in Canada to the Terry Fox Foundation, providing money for cancer research around the world.
