YHS joined together as a community for the Terry Fox Run on September 24. We gathered to celebrate perseverance, to honour people who are experiencing or have experienced cancer, in particular, our beloved Megan Dalziel, and to support cancer research. Stations along the route had posters indicating each province of Canada from east to west. Terry Fox began his run in Newfoundland and ran as far as Thunder Bay, Ontario when he was forced to stop his Marathon of Hope due to the spread of his cancer. In his name, and in the name of other loved ones who have lived with and fought cancer, we finished the journey across Canada as a community.
A big thank you to everyone for making this year’s Terry Fox Run such a fun, meaningful, and successful event. Special thanks to House Captains Dana and Chloe; Junior Head Girl Kate; Junior Vice Head Hannah; and all our fantastic staff who directed students out on the course or walked and ran with them. This event wouldn’t be possible without you all.
Thank you all for supporting a very important cause: Terry Fox’s dream of a world without cancer.
