We had our annual Terry Fox Run this past Thursday morning. Our school remembers Terry Fox (1958-1981) each fall by doing a run to raise money for Cancer Research. Terry Fox was a Canadian humanitarian, athlete, and cancer research activist. In 1980 after having a leg amputated, he began a run across Canada to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Although the spread of his cancer eventually forced him to quit his efforts it resulted in a lasting worldwide legacy. Each year over 60 countries participate in a day long event to raise money for cancer research. Check out this youtube video showing clips of Terry running and pursuing his dream to do his part find a cure for cancer.
Check for an update later in the week with how much our grade one class raised for Terry Fox.
