Brockville – Schools across the Upper Canada District School Board have raised approximately $70,000 through Terry Fox School Runs held over the past two weeks, with fundraising efforts continuing.
“Once again our schools have come through for Terry,” said Superintendent David Coombs. “It’s great to see that our students remain committed to raising funds for cancer research and showing empathy to those struggling with this terrible disease.”
Some of the UCDSB schools that performed well this year include:
• Viscount Alexander Public School raised $3,870.
• Char-Lan District High School raised $3,980.
• Athens District High School (ADHS) raised $1,552, more than six times that raised in the 2016 run.
• Toniata Public School raised $1,900, more than tripling last year’s total. For exceeding last year’s tally, Principal Rich Tamblyn will honour a promise to kiss a fish at the October 31 Spirit Day assembly.
