Terry Fox Foundation marks Canada 150
37 Years ago on April 12, Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope.
On the occasion of Canada’s 150th birthday, the Terry Fox Foundation is asking students what Terry means to them. They are inviting students to log on at terryfox.org and share their personal feelings on Terry’s legacy.
While his Marathon took place years before any students attending school today were even born, his legacy continues today with millions of dollars raised for cancer research in his name. Every year, schools across Canada, and indeed the world, take part in the annual run.
Drumheller schools have always been supportive of the Terry Fox Run, including St Anthony’s School which out of 1,400 schools in the territory is ranked 13 in fundraising. In 2014, because of their effort Fred Fox, Terry’s brother came to the school to address the students. St. Anthony’s School run organizer Gavin Makse is encouraging students to log on and share what Terry Fox means to them. Already dozens of students have shared how Terry’s legacy plays a role in their lives.
From the entries, the Terry Fox Foundation will be drawing names to receive one of 150 exclusive Terry Fox Run shirts. get the playground ready for the children.
