Terry Fox Run 2016

On Tuesday, September 13th, 2016, we were honoured to have Fred Fox, Terry Fox’s older brother, come visit our school. He shared some wonderful family memories and photos of the Fox family, their connection to Winnipeg and the Marathon of Hope. His presentation was a great reminder as to why it is so important to continue supporting the Terry Fox Run and cancer research.

On Friday, September 30th, the students will once again be running/walking in honor of Terry Fox. They will be running/walking outside before their morning recess. Please note that a donation is not necessary, but on that day, the school will only be collecting loonie ($1) and toonie ($2) donations. If you wish to donate more money to the Terry Fox Foundation, you may do so online or by cheque made payable to The Terry Fox Foundation. If donating by cheque, please print and complete the mini-pledge sheet found below and send it to the school with payment to ensure that you receive a tax receipt. To make an online pledge, go to terryfox.org and click on the National School Run Day tab and continue to follow the provided instructions.

Thank you in advance for your donations, they are greatly appreciated! Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the school at 888-1101 or email me at nbeaudin@sjsd.net. Thank you for your cooperation!
