Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our school will be holding our annual Terry Fox Walk fundraiser to commemorate Terry Fox’s inspirational Marathon of Hope on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.
Millions of students are expected to participate across Canada. Since Terry’s Marathon of Hope began in 1980, annual Terry Fox Runs have contributed millions for cancer research. Your generous contribution of donated funds total more than $13,000. Please help us make this year another successful Terry Fox Walk!
Student in Grades 1 - 6 will be walking a loop to the Beaver Pond and then returning to the school. Parent volunteers are needed to assist each class, please consider volunteering your time.
The Terry Fox Walk for the kindergarten classes will be held in our school yard.
In order to show our support for cancer research, we are requesting that each student make a donation of $1.00 or $2.00 for the Terry Fox Foundation. You can make this donation is a number of ways:
1) You can donate through “School Cash Online”: https://ocsb.schoolcashonline.com/
2) You can have your child give his/her classroom (homeroom) teacher $1 or $2.
3) Families also have the option to make donations online at www.terryfox.org . You can donate to our school fundraiser at:
In an event of rain, the Terry Fox Walk will be on Wednesday, October 4th.
Thank you in advance for your support.
The Staff of St Gabriel
