Galt Help­ing To Find A Cure

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion Tyler Her­ring and Matthieu Arse­neault Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

On the Septem­ber 26th, 2013 one thou­sand Alexan­der Galt High School stu­dents and staff showed their sup­port in help­ing to find a cure for can­cer by rais­ing $7000 in their an­nual Terry Fox walk.

Since 2005 Galt has raised nearly $102,000 thanks in part to the Stu­dent Ac­tiv­i­ties Co-or­diantor Bob Hal­sall and the Stu­dents Coun­cil. Dressed in the tra­di­tional red and white the en­tire school par­tic­i­pated in a three--kilo­me­ter walk off cam­pus that took them through Viewpoint and around the Ex­per­i­men­tal Farm in Len­noxville.

Upon their ar­rival the stu­dents and staff were treated with fresh rosy red ap­ples and bot­tles of wa­ter pro­vided by the school. Galt will con­tinue to keep Terry Fox’s dream alive by help­ing find a cure to this ter­ri­ble disease.
