Sunday, September 18th marked the 36th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. Spirits were high on campus as students, parents, staff, alumni, and members of our Windsor community, including Mayor John Bregante, continued Terry’s “Marathon of Hope” raising awareness of the Terry Fox story and funds for cancer research. There were strollers and wheelchairs, scooters and bicycles and participants of all ages. Whether cycling, walking, running, or horseback riding, participants were spurred on by the enthusiastic cheers of student volunteers along the way. A pet-friendly event, there appeared to be every species of dog, two beautiful horses and even a pet chicken and rabbit! The energy and spirit were contagious and the crowd lingered at the festive post-run barbecue listening to the terrific music provided by our student musicians. What incredible talent! Special thanks are extended to the many student and staff volunteers who made this year’s Terry Fox Run such a success. Whether by bagging groceries at the Atlantic Superstore, counting money and rolling coin, decorating the campus, marking the route early on Sunday morning, scooping ice-cream, or entertaining during the post-run barbecue, the work of many ensured all ran smoothly. Although donations for cancer research continue to come in, this year’s contribution has already surpassed $15,000, and it looks like we might even beat last year’s record ($16,200), stay tuned. Sincere thanks go to all who gave so generously. At KES we are proud to keep Terry’s dream alive and know that our efforts are making a difference. Congratulations to all involved!Taya ShieldsJunior School DirectorTerry Fox Run Organizer (Windsor)
