Terry Fox Run – Wednesday, September 30th

Once again Howard P.S. is pleased to be hosting its annual Terry Fox Run/Walk on Wednesday, September 30th (Rain Date: Thursday, October 1st). All monies raised through our event will go to The Terry Fox Foundation to further the cause of cancer research.

We are very proud to be associated with The Terry Fox Foundation and believe that your involvement will launch a successful, positive and meaningful school year. We are thrilled with our contribution to cancer research and to date almost $30,000 has been raised by the Howard School community for cancer research.

We encourage all students to take part in our efforts to help support cancer research. Participation on September 30th and the online pledging function are fun and easy ways to support this cause. Due to Work to Rule we are hopeful that all fundraising will be completed online this year. Please go to this link to get started:  Terry Fox Online Fundraising Link. If you must do a pledge sheet please print it off, complete information and submit it to the box in the office (do not give to Office Administration or Teachers).

You are also invited to participate by walking, jogging, or by cheering for our students as they complete their walk/run.  Although teachers are participating and supervising this event, it cannot run successfully without parent volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering please return the bottom portion to the bin in the office, not to the teacher, by September 18th.  

Our goal this year is to match last year’s contribution of just over $5000.  We are confident we can realize this goal with the full participation of the school community. We hope to count on your support. Let’s keep Terry‘s dream to find a cure for cancer alive.

Please see the attached inform regarding ordering Terry Fox T-Shirts that are available for purchase.  The proceeds of merchandise sold goes to cancer research. We will deliver them to your child’s class when they arrive. All orders must be received by September 23rd. Orders forms with payments should also be put in the box in the office.

If you have any questions please speak to Mrs. Ringler or Mme El-Shimy (catherine.ringler@tdsb.com).

Thank you in advance.

The Terry Fox Fundraising Team.
