Terry Fox Run!

Hello everyone! In memory of Terry, all this week at Bert Edwards Science and Technology school we will be collecting donations for the Terry Fox Foundation.

For over 30 years The Terry Fox Foundation has worked to achieve Terry’s vision – a world without cancer. Their researchers, staff and thousands of volunteers are determined to reach that goal. BEST CAN HELP! Our school has set a modest goal of $300 in donations; a little over a dollar for each student and staff member at the school. We are calling our initiative "Please bring a toonie for Terry," but any amount would be accepted and appreciated!

We will start our run in the gym on Friday around 11:20 am with a quick assembly and warm -up, then the primary students will run/walk out on the field, with the grades 4-6 students running down the River's trail to Westmount elementary and back; they may turn around at any point if feeling tired. Please note: in order to leave the school grounds for this community run, the students must have returned the community permission form sent home last Tuesday. Come join us! Everyone is welcome!
