Terry Fox/Walk-A-Thon – Thursday, October 10, 2019:

  • September marks the time of year where schools across Canada, and the world, continue the campaign that Terry Fox began more than 30 years ago – to raise money and awareness for cancer research
  • At Samuel Hearne MS, we will be continuing this campaign with 3 exciting initiatives we will be launching:
  1. We will be continuing Twoonies For Terry where we will come around to classes each day to collect any funds that are brought in – this will begin Monday, September 30, 2019 and will continue until Wednesday, October 9, 2019
  2. We will be having a Bake Saleon Thursday, October 10, 2019, with all funds raised being donated to the Terry Fox Foundation
  3. Last, we will be Walking For Terryon Thursday, October 10, 2019– the walk will follow a similar route as previous years along Taylor Creek:


  • Our goal is similar to Terry’s goal back in 1980 – if we can raise just one dollar for every Canadian, we will be on our way to curing cancer
  • Our goal at Samuel Hearne is to raise one dollar for each student, please contribute what you can

“Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. We need to keep the fight going.”
