“Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.”
Terry Fox, July 10, 1980
Once again Vincent Massey will be taking part in the annual Terry Fox School Run/Walk. The event will take place on the official National School Run Day: Thursday September 27, 2012 with a rain date of Monday October 1, 2012.
We will be following a normal school day schedule with students and their classroom teachers taking part during a designated period for each grade level.
The schedule is as follows:
Period 2 All Gr. 12 classes along with their classroom teachers
Period 3 All Gr. 9 classes along with their classroom teachers
Period 4 All Gr. 10 classes along with their classroom teachers
Period 8 All Gr. 11 classes along with their classroom teachers
Classes will be called down to our back campus at the start of the period where they will exit through our back gates and walk along the designated route. Once back students will return to their classroom for attendance and dismissal to their next period.
This year, student pledge sheets will be entered in a draw to win a bike, 1 of 5 flights for 2 anywhere in our country, a visit from Fred Fox (Terry’s Brother), or a set of Terry Fox books.
All proceeds go directly to the Terry Fox Foundation where 95%+ is used for cancer research.
Last year Massey raised $6130 bringing our overall total to $83,379.76. Wouldn’t it be great to break the $100,000 barrier this year? Together Massey we can make a difference.
