200 students plus administrators, teachers, parents, and others from 16 schools across the district ran as far as 13.79km from Seaview Community School in Port Moody and as high up the Mountain as the new Smiling Creek Elementary to the Terry Fox Foundation head office in Port Coquitlam to deliver a cheque for almost $38,000 to Kirsten Fox on Friday, October 13, 2018.
Frank Pearse, Principal at Seaview came up with the idea for this event
last year when 105 students from five schools delivered a cheque for just over $15,000. This year participating schools tripled in number, student runners double and best of all, the amount raised also more than doubled. It's all for a great cause and to honour Terry Fox's marathon of hope.
Special thanks to all who participated and helped support and make this a successful event including the school communities, the Port Moody Police Department, the Coquitlam/Port Coquitlam RCMP, and the Terry Fox Foundation.
