Delta Terry Fox runs raise thousands

At Neilson Grove Elementary, students clocked an impressive 320 km and raised $425 with their Toonies for Terry fundraiser.

A significant amount of money was raised to help with cancer research by other schools across the district, including $1,000 by Gibson Elementary and $1,500 by Delview Secondary.

What a great way to honour Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope!
