BAIE VERTE, NL — The Cop­per Ridge Academy school com­mu­nity and res­i­dents of Baie Verte came to­gether re­cently to par­tic­i­pate in an­nual Terry Fox runs.

The school col­lected $2,037 Fri­day, sur­pass­ing their goal of $1,000 by far. Stu­dents col­lected pledges, and those with the most gen­er­ated were given the op­por­tu­nity to sink their teach­ers in the dunk tank.

On Sun­day, the of­fi­cial day of the Terry Fox Run, there was 29 par­tic­i­pants in the an­nual pub­lic event, which raised $255. The com­mu­nity run is or­ga­nized each year in Baie Verte by Tr­ish Smith as part of her Team Cle ef­fort in mem­ory of her brother Cleon Smith of St. An­thony. El­lie Quigley, sport­ing her sticker, was one of the few stu­dents to par­tic­i­pate in both the Cop­per Ridge Academy and com­mu­nity events.
