Terry Fox Run/Walk Article

29 Sep

Thank-you for your enthusiasm and participation in the Terry Fox Run/Walk.  I think the other classes really enjoyed themselves and it was great to see you leading the way.  I can’t say enough about the way you embraced this activity.

Last night, we counted $240 raised for cancer research.  We have 3 more jars to count, so the final tally will  be more than we expected.

I’m also asking you to write an article about how our class organized the event, the event itself and how you felt about it.  If you’re interested in doing this, please email your article to  Many thanks!
