Terry Fox Run Part 1

Tomorrow is our annual Terry Fox Run. We will run to remember Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope and help to continue to raise money for cancer research.

The run will take place during period 4 rom 11:00-11:35. Staff and students will walk or run in the field behind the school.

Each staff member and student is encouraged to bring a toonie or other amount to help support this cause.  100% of the proceeds will go to the Terry Fox Foundation.

Today the students in Room 8 learned about who Terry Fox was.  They learned that he got very sick with cancer. He tried to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. The students are excited to bring money tomorrow and run to help continue Terry's work.

I showed them this short slideshow and the first 5 minutes of the following video to help explain why we are running tomorrow.

(The students only watched the first 5 minutes. We focused on how brave Terry was, not on his sickness or eventual death)
