In their bright reds and canary yellows, their brilliant greens and regal purples, St. Clement’s School took over Eglinton Park on Friday, September 21, 2018 for the Terry Fox Run.
Students from Grades 1 to 12, as well as teachers, staff, and even a few four-legged friends, all participated in the annual event to raise money for cancer research. Inspired by similar events held in more than 40 countries around the world since the inaugural Terry Fox Run in 1981, the St. Clement’s run raised funds for the Terry Fox Foundation through sponsorship, donations, and the sale of pizza slices.
Never short of enthusiasm or unwilling to lend a hand to a great cause, hundreds of thoughtful Clementines in their vibrant House colours and sporting their favourite Spirit items, took to the field in late-summer sunshine.
Despite the blistering heat and daunting humidity, there was no shortage of excitement on display and plenty of encouragement and generosity all around.
