Terry Fox School Run and Walk


Once again Bakersfield Public School is pleased to be hosting its annual Terry Fox Run and Walk on October 1st (rain date October 3rd). We will be holding a school assembly before the scheduled event to help raise awareness about Terry Fox’s remarkable story and his lasting legacy as a truly heroic Canadian.

The school will participate in our Terry Fox Run and Walk, with primary students (K-3) running and walking around our school property and junior/intermediate students (4-8) running and walking along a short supervised route around the community, in the general vicinity of the school.

To date, our school has raised close to $10,000 through it’s participation in this yearly event.  Last year we raised over $700 and our goal this year is to raise over $1000.  Please help our fundraising efforts by sending a toonie with your child by October 1st.  If each student brings a ‘Toonie for Terry’, we’ll exceed our goal, and contribute in an important way to ongoing cancer research.  We thank you for your support.
