Terry Fox:
On September 1, 1980, after 143 days of running the equivalent of a marathon everyday, Terry stopped running.  His primary cancer had spread to his lungs and he was forced to abandon his run just outside of Thunder Bay Ontario. That is why  every autumn schools and communities from  Canada and around the world take up Terry's cause and attempt to complete Terry's goal of raising enough money to eliminate Cancer. Please remember your donation, and your running shoes next Tuesday as we do our part to complete Terry's goal!!

Cops 4 Cancer: The Tour de Rock Team know as the COPS for Cancer are coming to Royal Oak on Friday, Oct 6th.  Be sure to make your donation to the cause. Our goal is to raise $750 per hallway. We can do it Royal Oak

There more we raise, the more staff members end up in the dunk tank!
