Dear Families;

Once again Holy Family Catholic School is pleased to be hosting its annual Terry Fox Walk on Friday, September 27th in the afternoon. 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 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 $32,000 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.

Our school is proud to be participating in the Terry Fox School Run. Please join our school community and support this worthy cause.

We hope to count on your support. Let’s keep Terry’s dream to find a cure for cancer alive. Thank you in advance.
