Supporting Terry’s Dream

Congratulations Children’s Garden School for placing 2nd in the elementary division of our Top 50 Fundraisers of 2019!

Thank you to our amazing CGS community for making this a reality. See below for a lovely letter Sara recieved from the Terry Fox Foundation ~

More than ever, good news is something to celebrate and treasure and do we ever have some for you!  We are thrilled to share the results of our 2019 Terry Fox School Run campaign and celebrate your school as a top fundraising school in Ontario.  It is because of your school’s dedication and compassion that we are one step closer to finding a cure for all cancers.

As a school organizer, you are instrumental in keeping Terry’s dream alive in the hearts of your students and for that we are truly grateful.  Through your motivation and inspiration, you are taking your students to a new level: one of selflessness and kindness, one of compassion and empathy, and one that will ultimately lead to groundbreaking cancer research, helping thousands of Canadians.

Terry Fox once said, “I want to set an example that will never be forgotten.” Terry would be so proud to know that millions of students around the world have followed in his footsteps.  It is thanks to the determination and enthusiasm of school communities like yours that over the past 39 years, an outstanding $800 million has been raised in Terry’s name.

As we approach the 40th anniversary of Terry’s Run, in this uncertain time, we hope you will take inspiration from the way Terry rose above the many challenges that met him on the Marathon of Hope and keep his message of courage and positivity in your heart. The road ahead may be unknown and unlike any that we have ever been on, but together, we will take it one step at a time – just as Terry did.

Congratulations again!!
