Campbell Collegiate held their Terry Fox Run/Walk Friday morning.
The school saw an overwhelming amount of support, with over 1,800 students and teachers participating this year.
Lance Elder is the Vice-Principal of Campbell Collegiate. He says it is important that schools continue to participate in the Terry Fox Run.
“I think it’s always important because we have so many people that either have been affected themselves or know someone who has been affected,” Elder says. “It’s such a big thing right now, awareness is huge, and the more that we can create that awareness and hopefully provide some support for the research and come up with a cure.”
The Terry Fox Run/Walk has lasted 36 years, with Regina holding their city-wide run last Sunday.
Rhai Renneberg is a student at Campbell Collegiate. He says he enjoys participating in the walk with his school.
“It’s a really great thing for my whole school, and it’s raising money for cancer awareness so I’m happy to be here for it.”
The Terry Fox Foundation separated from the Canadian Cancer Society in 1988. Since then, the Foundation has been able to raise over $650 Million.
