Terry Fox Walk Oct 2

25 Sep

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Terry Fox run. On Friday, October 2nd, students in grade K-8 at our school will be taking part in the Terry Fox National School Run.

Many people today have a connection to someone who has been impacted by cancer so the run can serve as a personal dedication to a friend or relative. Students can pick up a label from the office to wear on the day of the run to share who they are “walking for”.

If you would like to donate to the Terry Fox Foundation, please do so online www.terryfox.org

We are not collecting money at the school level so please do not send any money or cheques to school with your child. The foundation site is secure and receipts can be printed immediately upon completing your credit card donation. Simply click on the “Donate Now” tab in red and follow the prompts to make a school donation.

Students from kindergarten to Grade 3 will be walking around the school tarmac and students from Grade 4-8 will be walking around the school field. The student will be supervised by their teachers and EAs.

We a very pleased to be a part of the year’s Terry Fox Event as we encourage our students to develop volunteerism and goodwill, while celebrating school spirit. Thank you for support.
