QMS Terry Fox Run – Wednesday, September 26, 2018!

Next Wednesday afternoon, September 26, QMS students and staff will be participating in the Terry Fox Run.

When Terry Fox dipped his leg in the Atlantic Ocean back on April 12, 1980 to begin his journey, he could never have imagined that more than 8000 schools in Canada would make his cause for cancer research their own every September.  To date an outstanding $750 million has been raised for cancer research, benefiting the lives of countless people living with cancer today.

Classroom collections are underway to raise money for cancer research.  Our goal this year is to raise $650 – that works out to about $2 for every student and staff member in the school.  We will be collecting ‘Toonies for Terry’ until the Terry Fox run next Wednesday – and hopefully we can make Terry’s dream of curing cancer for good come true!
