On September 29, North Addington Education Centre students participated in the annual Terry Fox Run. North Addington has been doing the run for over 25 years and every year the students are excited about the run. The elementary students learned about Terry Fox and his journey before the run took place and started fundraising. The kick-off assembly last week made the students enthusiastic about participating. Terry Fox ran for everyone and his goal was to raise one dollar for every Canadian; since then Canadians have raised over $700,000,000!

Everyone in the school participated, including the kindergarten classes. Maci, a kindergarten student said “I ran for Terry Fox and I want to do it again.”

Cole Delyea, a grade 4 student said, “I want to do it again next year, I ran for a friend's grandpa...” His sister, Sierra said, “I ran for Terry Fox and I’ll try to run more next year.”

North Addington students will find out how much they raised next week. Until then, the school is very proud of their accomplishment and the students are eager to run again next year.
