September 2022

Our school is proud to take part in this year’s Terry Fox School Event. Please help us to continue the legacy of one of Canada’s greatest heroes, by donating and supporting our school’s fundraising efforts.


Since 1999, we have raised over $21,000.00 for the Terry Fox Foundation. Every dollar brings us closer to finding a cure for cancer. The theme of this year is I’m Not a Quitter, because Terry Fox famously said, “Nobody is ever going to call me a quitter.” 


Our Terry Fox School Run will take place on Friday, September 23, 2022. There will be a variety of activities leading up to the Friday event. On Friday, classrooms will go out during the day and walk or run for a period of time. Let’s do our part and continue our contribution to this cause.


Terry’s Story ….

At the age of 18, Terry Fox was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma and was forced to have his right leg amputated. Determined to help others suffering from cancer, he decided to run across Canada, running a marathon a day for 143 days, to raise funds for cancer research. Unfortunately, Terry’s cancer returned and he was forced to end his Marathon of Hope, but his legacy had only just begun.


Today, the future of cancer research is very bright. The Terry Fox Foundation funds a variety of different cancer research projects such as lung, breast, ovarian, pediatric, brain and blood. With your support, we will continue to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
