Terry Fox National School Run Continues at WES 40th Anniversary of His Marathon of Hope

Terry Fox National School Run Continues at WES 

40th Anniversary of His Marathon of Hope

 

Not even a global pandemic can stop our students and staff and their energy and love for our annual Terry Fox National School Run held on Wednesday, September 30th at our school.  This is our 16th annual national school run and due to COVID-19 restrictions on mass gatherings, we were unable to join the other schools this year at the PMM for our annual run/walk.  This year we took to the sidewalks outside our school building and continued on Terry’s legacy and his goal for a cure for cancer.  We headed out for our daily physical education period and had the entire school take their turn in running/walking around our school to promote active lifestyles and recognition of our Canadian hero, Terry Fox.  

The Kindergarten classes started us off in the morning when the weather was brisk but they didn’t complain and with smiling faces we were able to make our way around the school a couple of times in honor of Terry.  Then the Grade 3s completed their run/walk followed by the grade 4s and 5s.  The Grade 5s took their lunches and trekked to Bevan’s Nature Area and completed the loop five times.

In the afternoon, the Grade 2s carried on the tradition followed by the Grade 1s and the Grade 6s finished off the day in fine fashion by taking up Terry’s challenge and completed a number of laps around the school.  

Overall it was a huge success and we, as a school, will continue to honor and learn more about Terry Fox and the legacy he has left for us.  His Marathon of Hope is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year and we are thankful to be a part of it.  Huge WES salute to all staff for participating in this event and for teaching and promoting Terry Fox in their classrooms.  As well, to all staff who assisted in the creation of the numerous bulletin boards in our school that honor who we were running/walking for. Thank you to Kris Jeckylls from WOW for compiling the video on Terry and to all teachers for assisting in the reading of the book “Terry Fox and Me”.

Terry Fox started his race in the Atlantic Ocean and got as far as Thunder Bay, Ontario before cancer returned and he was unable to complete his journey across Canada. Through the Terry Fox Foundation over $800 million dollars has been raised for cancer research.  Over 60 countries run/walk in this annual event - wow!  What a legacy!

All donations can be made through the website at http://www.terryfox.ca/WainwrightElementary  

We encourage everyone to give a little and help support a worthy cause, that being, cancer research.

Stay safe.

Mr. Mitchell
