Wilshire E.S. Terry Fox School Run!

Wilshire Elementary School Terry Fox Run Postponed to Monday, October 2nd due to inclement weather!

Wilshire Elementary School

Terry Fox.jpgOn Friday, September 29th, 2017 students in Kindergarten – Grade 8 at Wilshire will be taking part in the annual TERRY FOX RUN  (Rain Date: Monday, October 2nd) at a scheduled time between 11:00 am and 12:00 pm.

Canada’s 150th anniversary year offers us the opportunity to celebrate our country and Terry at the same time this September! Students will have the opportunity to discuss the heroic efforts of Terry over the next few weeks and raise much needed funds for cancer research.  Through their participation in the annual School Run, we hope that our students will view themselves as positive agents of change giving the best of themselves to Canada, just like Terry did.

Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated. We are encouraging all students to bring in A TOONIE FOR TERRY”. Those students unable to bring in donations are welcome to participate…
