Celebrating Courage: A Canadian Hero, Terry Fox

What better way to celebrate our September Catholic Virtue of Courage than to celebrate Terry Fox and support his foundation for cancer research!

TOONIES FOR TERRY:  Students are asked to contribute a toonie ($2.00) to the Terry Fox Foundation.  If every student brings a toonie we can raise $500.00!  If we manage to beat the amount from last year, students will earn an extra recess.

Any donation of $20.00 or more is entitled to an automatic income tax receipt and cheques are to be made payable to the Terry Fox Foundation.  Please ensure that an address is included.

To donate online, please visit the Prince of Prince of Peace site at:  Http://www.terryfox.ca/PrinceofPeaceCSKeswick to sponsor our school until Monday September 30th.  Pledge sheets that went home should be returned by Monday September 30th with any cheques or cash collected.

Walk Details:

Kindergarten:  1 lap around schoolyard/field

Grade 1:  2 laps around schoolyard/field

Grade 2-3:  3 laps around the schoolyard/field

Terry’s passion led him to run the most memorable marathon in history and we continue to be inspired by his extraordinary determination to help others.  Thank you for your support and cooperation and for continuing to work hard so that Terry’s dream of finding a cure for cancer will become a reality.
