Once again Holy Family Catholic School is pleased to be hosting its annual Terry Fox Walk on September 28th from 10:25-11:45. (Rain date September 29th) All monies raised through our event will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation to further the cause of cancer research. Our walk will follow the same course as in previous years. Our route will be both on school grounds (for Kindergarten classes) and off school grounds as our course winds along Huron Street, Bleams Court, Grandview Avenue and Hunter Street. Students will be encouraged to complete the course as many times as the teachers see fit. Teachers, parents and supervisors will be on hand to supervise and assist students along the way. If you are interested in joining us to help supervise, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 519-662-1734. We also invite you to participate by walking, jogging or by cheering for your children as they complete their laps.
We are very proud to be associated with The Terry Fox Foundation and believe that our involvement will launch a successful, positive and meaningful school year. We are very proud of our contribution to cancer research; to date, more than $30,000 has been raised by the pupils in this school community for cancer research since 2001.
We are going completely paperless this year. All donations will be accepted, and tax receipts provided, through the Terry Fox Foundation website. Holy Family has a school page which can be accessed by clicking the following link:
and search for our school using the province and school listing provided at the bottom of the page.
Once on our school’s page, please select “Sponsor Us”.
We hope to count on your support. Let’s keep Terry’s dream to find a cure for cancer alive.
Thank you in advance.
