Dear Sheila,

In 1980, Terry Fox set out on a mission to transform his dream to find cures for cancer into reality. It takes enormous strength to conquer an obstacle as big as cancer. Terry never faltered in his determination to bring an end to cancer and we are honoured to see your school bring the same strength and spirit to this fight.

Thank you so much to the staff and students of Red Earth Creek School for your contribution of

$1490.6 for cancer research. These vital funds are accelerating precision medicine approaches and connecting field researchers in ways never thought possible under the Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres network.

Terry once said, "It isn't easy and it isn't supposed to be, but I've accomplished something. How many people give up a lot to do something good?"

Thank you to the community at Red Earth Creek School for doing "something good" - your kindness truly makes a difference.

With heartfelt thanks,


Oscar Andrade

School Fundraising & Event Coordinator The Terry Fox Foundation

P.S . Congratulations on such a fantastic fundraising increase! Your school leads by example, just like Terry did.
