The pandemic didn’t stop SHSH from holding annual Terry Fox events
It’s been 40 years since Terry Fox started his inspiring journey to raise money and awareness for cancer research, and this week both our Elementary and Senior Schools celebrated his legacy of hope and courage in many different ways.
Our Elementary School was engaged in Terry Fox related activities in class throughout the week, and on Friday the Junior Primary and Primary classes had a Terry Fox walk at the Public Gardens, while the Grades 1-6 walked to the Gorsebrook Park soccer field. Our Senior students also took part in a Terry Fox run during their Phys Ed class, and on a Terry Fox walk during one of their classes.
Both our Elementary and Senior students raised money for the Terry Fox Foundation. The Elementary School raised over $3,000 while the Senior School raised over $5,000.
It was a great week to remember Terry Fox, and that anything is possible if we try.
Thank you to all those involved in the organization of these activities and to all of those who made a donation.
