CARDINAL LEGER STUDENTS SURPASS THE $500,000 DOLLAR MARK FOR TERRY FOX
 
After completing 23 Terry Fox Run’s, Cardinal Leger Catholic School students surpassed their fundraising goal of $500,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation. The total raised to date is $504,554.00. The run was held at the school on September 28, 2012. The school hosted a campaign celebration in the gym on Friday October 19th and presented a cheque to the Terry Fox Foundation Delegates.
 
The Foundation was so thrilled by the school’s achievement. Staff at the Foundation prepared a special You Tube Video for the students expressing their thanks. http://youtu.be/Wbeq9RrFV9M
 
Cardinal Leger staff member, Cathy Nealon has been coordinating the event for the staff and students for 23 years. In addition to coordinating the annual school run, Ms. Nealon was also part of a four-member team of Ontario teachers who created school curriculum for the Terry Fox Foundation. The 27 lessons for teachers from Kindergarten to Grade 8 are now available on the Terry Fox website (www.terryfox.org) under the heading ‘Terry Fox Lesson Plans.’  This is the first time that the Terry Fox Foundation has offered educational resources to teachers.
 
Ms. Nealon has been a teacher with the Toronto Catholic District School Board for 31 years. Her sister Judi, also a staff member of the Board, passed away 24 years ago at the age of 35 from cancer, which was the catalyst for Ms. Nealon’s involvement with Terry Fox School Runs. 
 
Today, Cardinal Leger Catholic School has placed within the top 10 elementary schools in the province of Ontario for funds raised.  Congratulations to Ms. Nealon, Principal Michael Samler and to the students, staff and parents involved! This is an amazing accomplishment. Under the leadership of Cathy Nealon, the Cardinal Leger family continues to give and to be witnesses to this great cause.
