In 1980, Terry Fox undertook the unimaginable: to run across Canada to raise much-needed funds for cancer research. Terry had a dream - a world without cancer and his dream unified our nation, as Canadians from coast-to-coast banded together behind this remarkable young man.
To commemorate the dream, Chris Hadfield Public School will be joining schools across the country in the 42nd Terry Fox National School Walk/Run on Friday, September 23rd. (The rain date is Tuesday, September 27th.) We will be walking/running around the soccer field between Chris Hadfield Public School and St. Peter’s.
Please make sure you have completed the electronic walking permission form for all students. It was sent out along with all the school forms that were sent out at the beginning of the year.
Terry Fox believed he could make a difference by raising funds to support cancer research. Families are encouraged to make donations directly to the Terry Fox Run online at:
Terry Fox Walk/Run Donation
The donation link will be up and running as of THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 15th, 2022 and will remain open until FRIDAY OCTOBER 14th, 2022. Remember all donations are tax deductible. Last year our amazing Hadfield community raised an incredible $2,853.00 for cancer research. Let’s see if we can match or exceed that goal!
We are proud to continue the legacy of one of our country's greatest heroes. We hope you will join us and support this wonderful cause by donating to our Terry Fox School Run fundraising page.
Thank you! The future of cancer research has never looked brighter! #terryfoxliveshere@theterryfoxfoundation #terrfoxschoolruns
