Dear Parents/Guardians:

On Thursday, September 28, 2017 students in grades K to 8 at our school will be taking part in the annual Terry Fox School Run. For grade K-3 students this will take place on our school yard.  Students in grades 4-8 will have the option of walking in school yard with the rest of the students or running the 1.6 km route 3 times for a total distance close to 5km. (This is the typical distance of the Terry Fox Run.)  Students who choose the running option must be able to run the majority of the distance.  (rain/alternate date:  Tuesday, October 3, 2017) .

Canada’s 150th anniversary year offers us the opportunity to celebrate our country and Terry at the same time this September! Students will have the opportunity to discuss the heroic efforts of Terry over the next few weeks and raise much needed funds for cancer research.   Through their participation in the annual School Run, we hope that our students will view themselves as positive agents of change giving the best of themselves to Canada, just like Terry did.

Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated and donations of $20.00 or more that are listed on a Terry Fox pledge sheet (with a full name and address) are automatically receipted.  Cheques and cash will both be accepted. Please make any cheques payable to The Terry Fox Foundation. All monies raised will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation. Those students unable to bring in donations are welcome to participate in the event as well.

Please return any pledge forms and all monies by Wednesday, October 4, 2017.

Donating online is fast and easy.  Simply, go to www.terrryfox.org , click “Terry Fox School Run” and “Give to a Student”,  or click this direct url link http://www.terryfox.ca/StLeoSchBrantfordON which will take you to our school page on the Terry Fox Foundation website. Your child may also choose to set up their own fundraising page in the “Give to a Student” section.  By doing this, they will be able to email friends and family a direct fundraising link.

 We are very pleased to be a part of this year’s Terry Fox Event as we encourage our students to develop a sense of volunteerism and goodwill, while celebrating school spirit. Thank you in advance for your support!

Sincerely,

Miss Kras
