After an energetic warm up (see our SD64 District homepage for a great photo from photographer John Cameron) led by Principal Shannon Johnston (Ms J) all students walked, ran or jogged around our school field today to support the Terry Fox Foundation. Thank you to everyone who brought in donations today! We can also accept donations next week and once have a final tally we will be reporting it the community run organizer's and on the school news so that we can be included in the overall Salt Spring tally. 

This year our school has been set up on the Terry Fox Foundation webpage to receive online donations. Our school fundraising page is http://www.terryfox.ca/FernwoodElementary

The Community Terry Fox Run/Walk will be held on Sunday September 23rd, 2018 at the Rainbow Road Aquatic Centre at 262 Rainbow Road.  Registration will begin at 9:00 for an event start of 10:00.  Participants can look forward to post-run refreshments and snacks, on-site family entertainment and a free swim following the event.

A new route this year will involve trail sections through Mouat’s Park and a run through town on a sleepy Sunday with views of the harbor along the way will add to the experience.   The route runs through Mouats' Park, along Jackson Avenue, Seaview Avenue, Fulford Ganges Road, Lower Ganges Road, Park Drive, Aldous Road and returns to the Rainbow Road Aquatic Centre.  This constitutes a 2.5 km loop that participants can choose to repeat up to 10km.  No bikes on this route.
