Acwsalcta students complete another successful Terry Fox Run

Acwsalcta students complete the Terry Fox Run.

Another successful Terry Fox Run was held at Acwsalcta School on Tuesday, October 2. We were lucky to have a beautiful day and lots of enthusiastic participants! Students, staff, and community members were encouraged to demonstrate their support for cancer research by running or walking as many laps as they could around the two-kilometre loop in 4 Mile.

Our Vice Principal, Brittany Gulka set this years record, along with student Eddie Sampson, by running five laps equaling 10km! Our culture staff was very encouraging, singing and drumming for participants as they passed by the school.

We would also like to acknowledge our more sportsmanlike participants: Brandy Schooner, Ambrosia Andy, Eddie Sampson, Jonas Anderson, and Anuxum Sandoval. Thank you for demonstrating your best effort and encouraging your peers to do their best!

After the run/walk, participants were offered up a healthy snack and some water, before taking part in some organized games on the field. It was a day filled with exercise, awareness, and lots of fun! Thank you to all of the people who helped in making this event a success, including the RCMP and Bridgette.
