Terry Fox Run at Kent – Support a Great Cause!

This week, students will be fundraising to support the Terry Fox Foundation.  Teachers and students will be discussing Terry’s journey as well as those who have been touched by cancer.  We have raised upwards of $2500 in the past so this is an event that always bring our community together for a great cause.

The run will take place on Wednesday, September 28 at 11:00.  Every student will pass through our running course (that includes signs of all the major cities Terry ran through) and then be encouraged to “Finish For Fox” in which they run a little bit extra for Terry.  We invite all families to come and run with us or find a spot and cheer us on.  If you are able to help, please email me so I know how many volunteers will be there.

We will be encouraging students to bring in donations in the following format:

  • MONDAY – pennies and nickels
  • TUESDAY – dimes
  • WEDNESDAY – quarters
  • THURSDAY – loonies
  • FRIDAY – twoonies

Of course, bills are always appreciated 🙂 and if you would like to make a larger donations, please click here to donate to Kent School’s fundraiser for Terry Fox Foundation.  You will receive a tax receipt for online donations.

Thank you in advance for supporting a Canadian hero and a great cause.
