Terry Fox National School Run
What a privilege it is to be able to participate in the Terry Fox Run. This is a way that we can show others we care and that giving is a way to show God’s love to those around us. It is a great example of “Walking with God.” Students in grades 2-8 will be joining approximately 4,300 schools across Canada in the Terry Fox National School Run. To date an outstanding $750 million has been raised for cancer research - a sum that has transformed the lives of people living with cancer today. We are inspired to continue the Marathon of Hope that started 38 years ago at St. John's, Nfld. on a cold April 12 day.
This is our 10th year of participating in the Terry Fox Run. We have raised a total of $16,829 for cancer research! Everyone knows someone who has had to deal with cancer. There is hope! Students will once again be thinking of someone touched by cancer to write on their "I'm Running For..." sticker. WCS will be raising funds again this year and we will participate in the run on Wednesday, Sept. 26. Your continued support ensures that research teams are able to explore innovative approaches that result in improved outcomes for patients with cancer. Students in grades 3-8 have taken a pledge sheet home with them last week. Here is the link for online fundraising: http://www.terryfox.ca/WoodstockCSWoodstock.
