40TH AN­NIVER­SARY OF THE MARATHON OF HOPE

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - NEWS -

Stu­dents and staff at Swift Cur­rent Com­pre­hen­sive High School marked the 40th an­niver­sary of the Marathon of Hope with the school’s an­nual Terry Fox Walk, Oct. 8 and 9. There were ad­di­tional pre­cau­tions due to COVID-19, and as a re­sult the walk was split over two days. Each day’s walk took place dur­ing the first pe­riod, and the stag­gered depar­ture of small groups of stu­dents from the school build­ing en­sured no con­ges­tion at exit points. The walk took place through the sur­round­ing neigh­bour­hood and along the Chi­nook Park­way. In­stead of the reg­u­lar Toonies for Terry to col­lect do­na­tions in sup­port of cancer re­search, stu­dents were en­cour­aged to make an on­line donation to the Terry Fox Foun­da­tion.
