Quote of the Day:

Tomorrow our school will take part in the Terry Fox Run. Terry Fox started his run in Newfoundland and would run a marathon every day! A marathon is 42.2km! Almost the distance from here to the CN Tower in Toronto! He ran this every day for a total of 143 days straight, and 5373 km. His hope was to raise one million dollars for cancer research. Since then, worldwide, over $800 million has been raised for cancer research in Terry’s name. Tomorrow, think about who you are walking for and keep them in your heart while you walk. Let’s keep his Marathon of Hope going! Donations can be made through School Cash Online.
