On Friday, September 29th, 2017, students from Grades JK to 8 will be taking part in The Terry Fox National School Walk Day.
Many people have a connection to someone who has cancer so the walk can serve as a personal dedication to a friend or relative, as well as necessary fundraising. At home, please discuss the name of a friend, family member, or even a celebrity like Terry Fox, that your child can dedicate their walk to on Friday. That name will be written on a memorial sticker and will be worn on the day of our walk. At school, students will have the opportunity to hear about the heroic efforts of Terry and we will raise much needed funds for cancer research. All monies raised will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation.
Our school Terry Fox Challenge is to raise a ‘Toonie for Terry’ from each student. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated! Those students unable to bring in donations are welcome to participate in the event as well. Let’s make a difference!!
We are very pleased to be a part of this year’s Terry Fox Event as we encourage our students to develop a sense of volunteerism and goodwill, while celebrating school spirit. Thank you in advance for your support!
