On Wednesday, September 30th the students of Madonna Catholic School will be participating in an afternoon run in honour of Terry Fox. This year is the 35th anniversary of our Canadian hero's attempt to run across Canada to raise funds to fight cancer.
We are asking that we show our Canadian pride that day by dressing in red and white. The run will be outside so please ensure that your child is dressed for the weather. They could be outside for upwards of an hour. Mittens and hats would be a good choice.
We are also asking all students in the school to donate $1.00 to this cause. Please send in $1.00 to the classroom either before Wednesday or on that day.
