JWG Terry Fox Run 2018

JWG Terry Fox Run – 2018

JW Gerth’s Terry Fox Run will take place on Friday, September 28th at 2:30.  


This year, we are planning a fundraising incentive event to encourage greater participation. The three top fundraising classes (one Kindy, one primary and one junior) will get a chance to “Trash the Teachers”. This means at an upcoming assembly, they will get to throw wet sponges, squirt paint, spray water etc. at teachers who are dressed in protective gear such as garbage bags!


We will be collecting money for this very important charity up to and including the day of our run. Students are encouraged to bring in donations to their classroom teachers.  


Donations can be made in cash and may also be made online. Follow these steps to donate online.

    • go to www.terryfox.org
    • Search Ontario schools and scroll down for “Gerth”.
    • Click on “Sponsor Us”
    • Fill in your personal information


  • IMPORTANT!!  Under “Additional Information”, please include your child or children’s names, room numbers and teacher’s names so we are able to match the donation to the correct classrooms for our competition.



Our Spirit Day on that day is “Proud to be Canadian Day”.  Students are encouraged to come to school showing off their Canadian pride.  Proper running shoes are also required.


We are looking forward to a successful Terry Fox Run this year!  Thank you, in advance, for your assistance and support.


Remember – the more money donated, leads to more money for research and more hope for an end to cancer!
