Another Great Terry Fox Walk for RIA!

Our Runners!

Our Runners!

Our student Council organized a lot of events over the past couple of weeks and our school community raised a money for the Terry Fox Foundation.  Our theme was ‘Kiss Cancer Good-bye’.

We had a Student-Teacher volleyball game where they charged admission, a BBQ hot dog sale, and Terry Fox walk to breakfast.  During the walk students dressed in black and white and many had their faces painted like the band Kiss. All proceeds from these events are going to the Terry Fox Foundation so we can help ‘Kiss Cancer Good-bye’.

Thank you to Random Island Ambulance, Random East Fire Department, and the Clarenville area RCMP detachment for escorting us on our Walk!
