Terry Fox Run and Fundraising Campaign

Lord Byng Secondary is proud to take part in this year’s 40th Anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. Please help to show your support by clicking HERE to donate. Students can get involved too by creating their own fundraising page under their school name. Thank you for your supporting our school in the fight against cancer and continuing Terry’s legacy! #terryfoxschoolrun @terryfoxfoundation

Last year we raised a school record of $7,541.25. Please help us reach Lord Byng’s fundraising goal for this year of $8000. This will be more challenging this year with the pandemic but WE CAN DO IT LORD BYNG!

We will be doing the run over the course of the year, with our PE classes. Students and staff are encouraged to run or walk the old route or a new route on their own during September/October. We will be doing a school Terry Fox Run during Flextime on Wednesday, October 7th. For this, we will be using a new route. Students will be asked to register through a MS form by clicking HERE.

Who: All students and staff who want to RUN the Terry Fox Route as a group (Due to Covid restrictions which limits the amount of participants we can only have RUNNERS take part this year)

What: Terry Fox Run (Since we can’t do our school wide event in the regular way due to social distancing, we encourage you to join us to continue the tradition). Prizes for top runners and random draw prizes (gift cards and T-shirts) will be provided.

When: Wednesday, October 7 during F.I.T. FLEX TIME (Time to Be Announced)

Where: Pacific Spirit Park at 16th Avenue and Imperial Drive, (where Discovery turns into Imperial Drive).

Why: To raise money for Cancer research, celebrate Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, to get some fresh air and get some exercise. Please click HERE to donate and help us reach our goal of $8000. Students can get involved by creating their own fundraising page under their school name: https://terryfox.org/schoolrun.... Thank you for your supporting our school in the fight against cancer and continuing Terry’s legacy! #terryfoxschoolrun @terryfoxfoundation
