Green Glade raises more than $8,000 for Terry Fox
Green Glade Senior Public School proudly participated in their 11th Annual Terry Fox National School Run Day on Wednesday September 24th. The cancer fundraising campaign kicked off a couple weeks earlier with a "Terry's Team" cancer survivor speaker. Students brought in pledges from the community and classes had friendly competitions to generate funds. On Terry Fox Day, the whole school walked through the community, proudly flying the Canadian, school and Terry Fox flags. After a school BBQ at lunch, students spent the afternoon outside participating in a variety of activities. The next evening, there was a charity fundraiser using generous donations from community businesses at "Meet the Teacher Night." Green Glade surpassed their goal of $5,544 (last year's total plus one dollar) raising an impressive $8,170! Plans are already being made for next year's event!
