Toronto Catholic District School Board

The Terry Fox Foundation Letter to TCDSB​

Dear Mr. McGuckin:
 
2018 was a fantastic fundraising year as more than 4,200 Ontario schools raised over $7 million for the Terry Fox Foundation. It is with great excitement that we announce the following placements of schools from the Toronto Catholic District School Board on our ‘Top 50 Fundraisers of 2018” listing!
 
#8 Our Lady of Sorrows School Elementary Division
 
Terry was very proud to be Canadian and he would be just as proud to know that millions of Canadian students take part in the Terry Fox School Run every year to find a cure for all cancers. It is with the incredible dedication of these students, that to date, an outstanding $750 million has been raised for cancer research in Terry’s name – a sum that has transformed the lives or people living with cancer today.
 
We would like to share one such success story – 12 year old Aiden, our 2019 School Poster Ambassador. Diagnosed with bladder cancer at only 10 weeks old, Aiden’s family knew that he would have a long road ahead. Aiden endured 42 weeks of chemotherapy treatment and surgery to remove the tumor. Six months later, his cancer came back, resulting in another surgery and more chemo and radiation. Fast forward to 2019 and Aiden is now 12 with a passion for hockey. A loyal Ottawa Senators fan, he loves cheering on his team, but also hitting the ice himself. Aiden continues to stay positive and challenge himself to reach new heights and overcome obstacles just like his hero Terry Fox.
 
The continued support of your dedicated schools ensures that our research teams are able to explore innovative approaches that result in improved outcomes for patients like our friend Aiden. As we embark on the 2019 Terry Fox School Run this fall, we are so grateful to everyone who continues to work so hard to carry on Terry’s dream to create a world without cancer.
 
With Sincere thanks,
Lisa Armstrong, Wendy Fric, Katie Fyfe & Nishi Bansal
