Kakabeka Falls Public School Walked 50 Kilometers for Terry Fox

The distance between Kakabeka Falls Public School and the Terry Fox Memorial and Lookout is approximately 50 kilometers. To celebrate the inspiring Canadian hero and his dream to find a cure for cancer, the school community created a unique fundraising activity by initiating the on-site project “Walk Terry to Kakabeka Falls”.

The schoolyard perimeter is half a kilometer, therefore between students, staff, and family members, the school community covered the distance 100 times to mimic a fraction of the distance Terry Fox accomplished, and to symbolize bringing Terry Fox to the community. The school is pleased to have more than doubled its fundraising goal of $1,000 and brought in over $2,500 for the The Terry Fox Foundation. Congratulations!
