Terry Fox Challenge at St. Edward Catholic School
The St. Edward Catholic School community embarked on a challenge this year to celebrate Terry Fox and the 40th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope.
The school set a goal to try and cover as many kilometres as they could to run just as Terry did and keep his dream alive. From September 21st to October 9th students and staff walked or ran a 0.5km loop around the schoolyard or a 0.58km loop around the arena field during DPA, Phys Ed and other moments throughout the day. Some students ran extra kilometres outside of school as well to add to our total kilometre count. At the end of the three weeks, the St. Edward Catholic School community completed a total of 1712 km in Terry’s memory.
