Terry Fox Walk/Run – Friday October 26, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Grade 12 Recreation and Fitness Leadership class would like to inform you about the upcoming Terry Fox Walk, which will be held on Friday October 26, 2018. We remember the courageous young man, Terry Fox, who set out to run across Canada in order to raise money for cancer research. Each year the entire SJDB community walk approximately 4 kilometers to raise money for cancer research.  All staff and students are encouraged to wear Spirit Wear for the day of the walk.  The day will be filled with many activities.  After the walk, we will return to school for some refreshments, ice cream trucks and the Club & Council fair.  Our walk this year will be celebrated with Homecoming which will showcase our boys soccer program in a league match vs Holy Cross.

Pledge forms will be handed out to all students. This year we are requesting that students contribute a minimum donation of $5. Any contribution over $20 will receive a Tax receipt. All cheques must be made payable to the Terry Fox Foundation for the tax receipt.

Last year, St. Jean de Brebeuf CHS contributed approximately $4450 to Terry’s cause! The Committee is putting out the challenge to exceed last year’s amount and challenging our school to raise at least $6000.  Please assist the St. Jean de Brebeuf community to reach our goal for this great cause.   Your support is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

D. Lamonica

Vice Principal
