In Memory of Terry Fox

Last month we learned about and raised money for Terry Fox. The girls were officially done their running season, but I suggested one last race. A 10K. They book looked at me like I had grown an extra head but I reminded them of the fact that Terry Fox ran over 5000 kilometers on an artificial leg!

The girls worked as a team and in only one week, raised their goal of $500! That amazing feat in such a short time attracted enough attention that they ended up in the local newspaper twice! (here, with their picture, and here)

After learning about Terry Fox, Tanya Dussiaume and Brianna Mallette raised $500 in just one week for the Terry Fox Run. KATHRYN BURNHAM/CORNWALL STANDARD-FREEHOLDER/QMI AGENCY
