Terry Fox Run at Star Academy

In Blog, News & Events by Julie Benneyworth

Star Academy students participated in the Terry Fox School Run on Friday, September 28th. Children aged 3 to 13 ran alongside teachers, wearing badges to show their support for Terry and others who have fought cancer. Students were encouraged to “Be Like Terry”, and united as a school, demonstrating a great sense of community and high spirits. Empathy, respect, honesty, integrity, caring, perseverance, courage, and teamwork are skills that were highlighted as students focused on traits and actions that make Terry Fox a Canadian hero. Fundraising took place with ‘Toonies for Terry’ and online at our school pledge page, http://www.terryfox.ca/StarAcademyMississauga
