As has been tradition at St. Augustine School, our school community participated in its annual Terry Fox Run. Our Grade 4 class and Mrs. McFaul organized the run this year and lead an assembly during which Terry Fox’s life and achievements were presented. We were blessed this year to have artist Cliff Kearns, one of our school grandparents, with us at our assembly, where he presented the school with one of a limited number of prints of his portrait of Terry Fox, which was the only one endorsed by Terry himself before he passed away in 1981.
After the assembly, all our students from Kindergarten to Grade 7 walked, jogged or ran to honor the memory of one of Canada's greatest heroes and to raise awareness for cancer research and for the fight against cancer. Students were asked to bring a $2 donation, and all proceeds went to the Terry Fox Foundation.
