Terry Fox Run at OHS
On Oct. 3rd, our school will be proudly participating in the Terry Fox School Run. Over 8500 schools across Canada are taking part in the Run this year and that means that over 3 million students will be fundraising for cancer research in Terry’s name. This is one of our most favorite events of the year – we get to celebrate the life of Terry Fox, his Marathon of Hope and show our school community our incredible school spirit as we come together to help others.
Our Run this year is an opportunity to take action, show leadership, to make a difference in the lives of those battling cancer. Unfortunately, we all know someone with cancer, whether it’s a family member or friend, we’re all touched by cancer in some way and it’s up to us to take action now.
And so, for this year our fundraising goal is for each student at Olds High to bring a “Toonie for Terry.”
The 5th-period class that raises the most money per student will get a pizza party.
