Once again the staff and students of St. Francis School will be taking part in the Terry Fox Run on Friday, Sept. 29th, 2017 in the afternoon. (Rain date: Oct. 6th 2017). Weather permitting, we will be walking to Churchill Park to complete the Run. Students have already returned permission letters for walking to the park so another permission form is not necessary. Please have your child wear running shoes, comfortable clothes and bring a water bottle that day.
Our school has raised over $45000 dollars towards Cancer Research in the last 23 years that we have participated in the Run. Hopefully we can add to this total making it over 46 thousand dollars with this year’s campaign, our last campaign together as a St. Francis School Community. The top pledge earner for the school will earn a special Terry Fox T-Shirt to be presented at our Monthly Assembly.
Please allow your child to find sponsors among friends and family members. People can also sponsor a student online by visiting www.terryfoxrun.org/. We do not recommend your child going door-to-door for donations. Pledge forms and donations are to be returned by October 4th. If you are able to help supervise on the Run and would like to join us, please complete the bottom portion of this letter and/or let your child’s teacher know.
