Terry Fox Run

Dear Parents/Caregivers:

We are excited to announce that our school will be proudly taking part in the 2022 Terry Fox School Run, scheduled to take place on Friday, September 23 . This event will support cancer research while also building incredible school spirit for our students. Let’s all show the great strength and resiliency of our school community with your support of one of our greatest Canadian heroes, Terry Fox. 

 

On Friday, September 23rd, we will run or walk for Terry in different sections of the yard, as well as on the path behind the school. Children should come dressed to be active! The rain date will be Monday, September 26th. 

The Terry Fox Foundation has created an online fundraising page for our school as well as provided student/classroom “Terry” activities. Here are some of the ways you can support your child for this year’s Terry Fox event:

We need volunteers to help on the day of the event. Please let your child’s teacher know if you are able to help and you have a current criminal record check on file with the school office.
