Terry FOX WALK Raises $200.00!
Students, staff and community members helped raise over $200.00 at this year's Terry Fox Walk! It was a hot and sunny afternoon, but the walk was very successful! Thanks to everyone who turned out to help support this very worthwhile cause. It was so successful that Mr. Campbell's hair turned pink! Well done everyone!
