Terry Fox Run:
Our Annual Terry Fox Run will look a little different this year. It will take place Wednesday, October 13th, but due to large numbers, we will have 3 different walks (one per grade level) in the afternoon of the 13th. Grade 7s - 12:50 -1:30; Grade 8s - 1:30-2:10; Grade 9s - 2:10-2:50. Jill will send out more details soon.
Terry's goal was to raise one dollar per Canadian citizen and he exceeded that goal. We are hoping to raise one or 2 dollars per person in this school for a goal of $1000.
Like last year, we will be asking students and adults for donations - for every dollar you give, you will receive a ballot (if you give $1, you get one ballot; if you give $5, you will get 5 ballots, etc...) that will go in for a draw. We will draw for 2 Terry Fox T-Shirts, a Terry Fox Mask and a Terry Fox pin the day before the walks. Your teacher will have ballots soon - they are blue and stamped with "Stonepark Gives Back" – all monies collected will go to the Terry Fox Foundation and cancer research. We will also be collecting loose/spare change in the Spare-Change Mobile during lunch hours. (Repeat daily.)
