“A Million Steps” ends with a special surprise

Tim Michalchuk has completed his arduous journey and had one more surprise for Shannon at the end of it all: a marriage proposal.

Tim Michalchuk has completed his arduous journey and had one more surprise for Shannon at the end of it all: a marriage proposal.

The moment was captured live by CTV as Michalchuk and Dickson were reunited, together with their children Maeve and Peter, outside Vancouver’s UBC MS Clinic.

Michalchuk’s walk began in early April and ended this Saturday, April 30. He has logged over 1,100 kilometres, and said he’s “almost a bit sad” that the walk is now over.

“Between the truck breaking down and wearing through a pair of shoes, it’s been an adventure,” he said. “I’d go to the end of the world and back if it meant helping this woman. But isn’t that what we’re supposed to do?”

Michalchuk’s epic journey may have ended, but a new one has begun. In front of a crowd that included his children and grandparents, Michalchuk got down on one knee and proposed to the love of this life.

“I need you to do me a favour,” he said, pulling out a ring. “Tell me you’ll marry me?”

“Of I course I will, in a heartbeat,” said Dickson, embracing her future husband.

“His shins are black and blue from bruising and he’s got horrible blisters on his feet – but he’s done this for me,” Dickson said.

The couples’ GoFundMe page has raised more than $10,000 for Dickson’s treatment. For more information or to make a donation, check out their page at https://www.gofundme.com/kehkkd4k
