This year marked the 40th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. We have typically led a YHS run/walk in the neighborhood as a whole school community. Due to COVID-19, our Terry Fox Run was held in small groups during our PHE (Physical & Health Education) classes on September 29th and 30th. We were delighted that we were still able to join together as a YHS community to support the Terry Fox Foundation, an organization that supports cancer research, and honours the people we know and have known and loved who have lived with cancer.
With the generous donations of Junior and Senior School students, YHS raised $1900.00 to donate to the Terry Fox Foundation.
Thank you to Tahlia and Riley, our Community Service Captains in the Senior School, who helped organize the event. Thank you also to our Physical Health Education Teachers who held the event in their classrooms. Congratulations to the whole school community for supporting this wonderful annual community-building event!
