Sicamous students ran, walked and jogged to honour Marathon of Hope runner Terry Fox.
On Friday, Sept. 22, Parkview Elementary students took part in School District 83’s Terry Fox Run day, which had teachers and students across the region on their feet to mark the time of year when Canadian Terry Fox ended his run to raise money for cancer research and share hope for recovery.
Students in every grade gathered in the gym to watch a video and sing the national anthem before heading outside to the school’s field, where younger classes ran laps inside the fence and older students circled the outer path.
Teachers handed out frozen treats at the end of the run, just in time for recess.
