It is that time of year again, to acknowledge the amazing efforts of Terry Fox and all those that have followed behind him in the push to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.
This year, due to Covid-19, our efforts are going to be month long through the next three weeks of September. The plan is for Teacher's to take their classes on a "Terry" break. At the teacher's discretion, they will take their class out to the track, which measures 400 m, and walk a certain number of laps that the teacher feels is good for their class.
At the end of each of the three weeks we will tally up the total number of laps and convert the distance into Km's. At the end of the three-week total, we will take the number of kilometers and apply it to the route that Terry ran. Hopefully, we can collectively muster up the kind of effort that Terry brought forth in his courageous battle.
