The Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board is calling on parents to support their children’s efforts to raise funds for cancer research through the annual Terry Fox Run on Thursday, Sept. 26.
The board’s staff and students have raised more than $1.2 million for cancer research to date, says the board, adding that runs are being organized by 50 schools throughout the board’s region.
In 1980, Terry Fox challenged his fellow Canadians to battle cancer.
“If we all donated just one dollar, we’d have $22 million for cancer research … there’s no reason that isn’t possible. No reason!” he was quoted saying.
Terry, the board says in a release, never gave up hope and neither will the more than 22,000 students at the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, who will continue to enthusiastically participate and support this important goal.
