Terry Fox Run at L.V. Rogers

L.V. Rogers raises $1,500 in Terry Fox Run

Nelson’s high school students outdid themselves this year in the annual Terry Fox Run.



Nelson’s high school students outdid themselves this year in the annual Terry Fox Run.

Longtime recreational leadership teacher Sheri Morrison’s class organized the run September 26 with the theme “call of the wild.”

Their goal was to raise more than the $1,400 collected last year, which was a record in itself. As an added incentive, if they met their target, principal Tim Huttemann and math teacher Paul Belanger agreed to shave their heads.

The run started with a short assembly where Paisley Randall, a Grade 12 leadership student, gave a short, inspiring speech about Terry Fox.

Leadership students completed extra fundraising on their own time so they could achieve their goal, and the final tally last week stood at about $1,500.

An assembly will be held in November to celebrate the achievement — and watch Hutteman and Belanger make good on their promise.
