~Terry Fox Walk on October 1st~

September 2015

Dear Parents:

Once again Tumpane Public School is pleased to be hosting its annual Terry Fox Walk on October 1st (Rain date October 2nd). All monies raised through our event will be forwarded to The Terry Fox Foundation to further the cause of cancer research.


Our walk will follow the same course as in previous years. Our walk will be held at the school

on our field. The course is approximately 1 kilometre in length and students will be encouraged to complete the course ten times for a total of 10 km. Teachers will be on hand to supervise and assist students along the way.


We will be collecting “Twoonies for Terry” for the event which can be dropped into the big coin jar located in the main office. Our goal this year is to fill that jar with as much money as possible!


We are very proud to be associated with The Terry Fox Foundation and believe that our

involvement will launch a successful, positive and meaningful school year. We are very proud of our contribution to cancer research.


Our goal this year is to match last year’s contribution. We are confident we can realize this

goal with the full participation of the school community. We hope to count on your support.

Let’s keep Terry’s dream to find a cure for cancer alive.


Thank you in advance.
