Our Terry Fox Run is quickly approaching. Our Kick-Off Assembly with be held on Friday, Sept. 21st. This year the Terry Fox Fundraising and route will be different than in the past.
Our run will be Thursday, Sept. 27th. Our School Run will begin at 12:00 and go until 1:30. I have not planned a rain day simply for the fact that Terry ran in the rain, sleet, snow, heat, and wind to raise awareness...we should be able to do the same. If the weather is not pleasant, we can, of course, shorten our times.
Procedure: Students will take a class picture at the side of gym (taken by Media Team members)... have a quick pep talk and then begin running/jogging/walking (they will step on our blue gym mats symbolizing dipping their foot into the Atlantic Ocean). Each student will have a half page map of Canada and every time they complete a lap of the yard will receive a stamp, dot, initial for a province following Terry's path (hopefully).
Change for Change and Starfish Sales: Will be discussed at the Kick-Off assembly
Starfish: 1 for $0.25 or 5 for $1 (Sales begin Sept. 24th and go thru Sept. 28th)
Change for Change: Monday, Sept. 24th - nickels, Sept. 25th - dimes, Sept. 26th - quarters, Sept. 27th - loonies, and Sept. 28th - toonies
