The Terry Fox Letter That Came Home Today!
Dear Grade 5/6s and Parents,
Tomorrow we are going on the Terry Fox Run! We will be leaving the school at 10:30 a.m. and heading to Dovercourt Park to run laps and have a great time! Students will bring their lunches and have a picnic with students from other grades who are in their running groups! Please remember to wear comfortable clothing and running shoes. Bring your water bottle and your lunch. Bring a sweater or jacket in case it gets cold. Dress appropriately.
We are fundraising for the Terry Fox Foundation to raise money for cancer research and awareness. Almost all of us are impacted by cancer, we probably all have friends and family who had or might have cancer, so we think it's really important to bring in money to help cure cancer so they won't have to suffer that.
Our goal is to bring in $1 per person at least. This is because Terry, when he was going around Canada, he asked every Canadian to give just one dollar. He was put on the one dollar loonie because of this. We also wanted to try to collect money from our family members and friends to see how big our Churchill community is and how much we can help.
