TERRY FOX FACTS: On April 12, 1980, Terry dips his artificial leg into the Atlantic Ocean in St. John’s, Nfld to begin his odyssey. He runs an average of 42 kilometres a day (equivalent to a marathon a day) through six provinces.
After 143 days and 5,373 kilometres Terry stopped running outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario; his primary cancer had spread to his lungs. Before returning to BC for treatment Terry said, “I’m gonna do my very best. I’ll fight. I promise I won’t give up.”
EWS Terry Fox Run/Walk: This school-wide event is scheduled to take place Friday, September 29th during last period. Staff and students are encouraged to donate “Toonies for Terry” or any donation will be acceptable. Let’s show our EWS Warrior spirit in the fight to cure cancer!
