Terry Fox Run

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On Wednesday, September 25, 2019, students in grades K – 8 at our school will be taking part in The Terry Fox National School Run Day (rain date: Thursday, September 26, 2019). Students from kindergarten to Grade 3 will be walking around the school field and students from Grade 4 to Grade 8 will be walking around the school building. The students will be supervised by their teachers to ensure their safety.

Our school is proud to play an important role in keeping the legacy of Terry Fox going. Students will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the heroic efforts of Terry over the next few weeks as well as raise much-needed funds for cancer research.  Through our participation in the Terry Fox School Run, we hope to encourage leadership in our students and create positive agents of change in our wonderful school community.

Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated and donations of $20.00 or more listed on a Terry Fox pledge sheet (with full donor name and address) are automatically receipted.  Cheques and cash are both accepted. Cheques can be made payable to The Terry Fox Foundation. Please return any pledge forms and all monies by October 2nd, 2019.

All monies raised will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation and 82 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research! 

Another way to support The Terry Fox Foundation is by donating online. It’s fast, easy and donors get a receipt immediately by email.  

  1.   go to www.terryfox.org
  2.   click “Terry Fox School Run”
  3.   click “Donate to a Student/School”
  4.   Enter the name of your school and follow the prompts to donate

 Your child may also choose to also set up their own fundraising page by clicking the  “Donate to a Student” button. Their page will connect automatically to our school’s fundraising page and they’ll receive a link to email friends and family to help them reach their fundraising goal.

We are very excited to be a part of this year’s Terry Fox Run. This is our opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from cancer. We hope you will join us as our school community bands together in the fight against cancer. Thank you in advance for your support!

Sincerely,

Wilshire Staff
