Terry Fox Run/Walk
Celebrating Terry Fox
Each September we remember and celebrate our great Canadian Hero Terry Fox.
We remind our students of the tremendous Marathon of Hope that Terry ran and the difference it continues to make in the lives of millions of families who have been touched by cancer. Students learn about the facts and milestones of Terry’s run and the legacy he left behind. We will collect “toonies” for Terry during the next few weeks and all funds will be sent to the Terry Fox Foundation for Cancer research. Our goal as a school community this year is to once again collect $300. Thank you in advance for your kindness in helping us reach that goal.
Students and staff members will also take part in our annual Terry Fox Walk/Run on Friday, September 17th. We will have a Wear Red and White Spirit day on that day to celebrate Terry and his accomplishments.
We also hold “Wear Pink” Spirit days throughout the year to show awareness for loved ones that have been affected by Cancer.
