École Sir William Osler’s 2017 Terry Fox Run
This year’s Terry Fox Run was a huge success! Students, staff, parents and grandparents met in our school gymnasium to learn more about our Canadian hero, Terry Fox.
Terry Fox was born on July 28, 1958. He was diagnosed with cancer in March 1977. After treatment, Terry began his Marathon of Hope by dipping his leg in the Atlantic Ocean in Newfoundland on April 12, 1980. Terry’s dream was to raise $1.00 for each Canadian and Terry’s Marathon of Hope succeeded in raising over 24.1 million dollars!
Terry died in June of 1981. To date, over $715 million has been raised in Terry’s name for cancer research.
At École Sir William Osler, we are very proud to say that this year, our small school raised over $600 for the Terry Fox Foundation! Awesome job, École Sir William Osler families!
Thank you to our awesome phys.ed. teacher, M. Klym, for organizing this terrific event!
