Mother Nature cooperated with us as students participated in their annual Terry Fox walk on September 29, while still maintaining social distancing. On behalf of the Terry Fox foundation, thank you so much to our school community for taking advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from cancer, while also building school spirit, raising $490 dollars to support cancer research. We will continue to use Terry’s message of hope and strength to inspire us during these challenging times.

Student quotes: 

-People do the Terry Fox run to represent Terry and what he wanted to do. Terry Fox made a great effort to run across Canada, to spread awareness of cancer, as well as raising money for cancer research. So, in honour of Terry Fox, schools across Canada do a run to help recreate his legacy and raise money for cancer research. 

-We run or walk because its important to remember what Terry Fox did for charity. He ran for so long with only one real leg and one prosthetic leg, 42 kilometres every day. It was painful for him but he still did it anyways. Then everyone started donating and he put all that money into cancer research.
