Terry Fox Run/Walk 2015


This is the 35th anniversary of Terry Fox’s cross country run!  It is MidSun’s 11th annual year of participating in this charity event.  Our run date is Sept. 24th from 9am – 10:45am.  Every student will be given a free water bottle at the end of the run, but is encouraged to bring their own drink during the run to stay hydrated.  We will leave MidSun and head down into Fish Creek where we will complete two laps around Lake Sikome.

Your son/daughter has been asked to bring in a minimum $1.00 donation to contribute to cancer research.  This was Terry’s dream and anything more than that is greatly appreciated J

We have a few fun challenges from our staff to see if we can challenge our school community to donate more to this charity.

1.       If we raise $5,000 Mr. Sherin, Mr. Woods & Mr. Johnston will shave their beards!  This may seem like a basic request… but these men have had their facial hair for a long time and they will be devastated! 

2.       Mr. Rae has offered to cut off his long blonde hair and donate to have a wig made (yes – his hair is that long!) if MidSun can reach the lofty goal of $10,000!

Students can collect donations from friends and family as it was not Terry’s wish for people to go door to door.
OR – if the donation is greater than $20.00 and requires a tax donation receipt, please head to the attached web site, find MidSun School and donate on-line.  This will ensure you receive your receipt.

 When you reach the Terry Fox Web site - scroll down to “sponsor a student / school” and type in “MidSun School” and choose the province “Alberta”.

This site will keep a running total of our school’s donations J
