St. Pat’s Joins Edgewater in an Amazing and Collaborative Terry Fox Run

On September 29th, St. Patrick and Edgewater Elementary Schools in Pincourt joined together for the Terry Fox Run. With 900 students participating, the morning started off with a kick-off assembly hosted by the Physical Education teachers from both schools. Mr. Ian Ramsay from the Terry Fox Foundation gave a memorable speech and and they were honoured with the presence of the Mayor of Pincourt and our Regional Director, Veronique Marin.

A major goal was to count up the collective kilometres that every student participating was able to run during our schools’ event. Terry ran 5,373 kilometres in 143 days. Collectively, our outstanding students ran a total of 3400 kilometres during the morning run – truly impressive for our 900 students! But the most important message we learned was just how heroic and unbelievable Terry’s personal Marathon of Hope really was – what an amazing feat of endurance, persistence, determination and courage.

The sun was shining bright as the run began. Afterwards, students were treated to a juice box courtesy of both schools Home & School while they had a chance to mingle. Together, the schools raised an astounding $10,156.61 for the Terry Fox Foundation - quite an amazing effort by both school communities.

The effort from all of the students was priceless and the event was a huge success. Terry Fox would have been proud that the two Lester B. Pearson schools came together to continue his dream and support the Marathon of Hope.
