Terry Fox Run
"A Dream As Big As Our Country"
Haldane's annual Terry Fox Run will take place this Friday, Sept. 18 starting at 1:00 near the outdoor basketball courts behind the school. Primary students will run the perimeter of the school field and Intermediate students will head out on a run through Chase and finishing back at the school. Students will be collecting a "Toonie for Terry" to help support the Terry Fox Foundation and cancer research.
This year students are also "finishing Terry's run" at recess and lunch by running laps around the school track. As students run each lap they are given a popsicle stick to help them keep track of the number of laps they have completed. Students hand in their popsicle sticks to their teacher, who will keep track of total laps for their classroom and this information will be posted on the map of Canada outside Mrs. Hoogstins office. Students have already made great progress towards finishing Terry's goal of running across Canada! Keep on running Haldane!
