Terry Fox Run and Donations

This year, QEA is holding its annual Terry Fox Run on Friday, September 14th at Chaldecott Park. All week, the students had been learning about Terry and his Marathon of Hope. QEA has a long and proud history of raising a substantial sum of money relative to our size. Families are encouraged to visit the official Terry Fox website for QEA if they wish to donate. Donations can be made until September 28th. We have set a goal of $2,000 for this year, in order to beat our donation of last year. Thanks in advance for your support of this event.

 

PS: Over the next few days, please take a moment to visit the gym to see the banners that QEA received for being a part of the Terry Fox Run for more than

 25 years.​

QEA also participates in the VSB Cross-Country program, which is comprised of a few mini-meets (2-3 schools competing) with the season culminating in a District-wide meet at Trout Lake on October 18th. It’s not a long season but it’s intense! Super fun too – our team works very hard and does very well at the meets.

 

Hope to see you all on the 18th! Stay tuned for more information about the VSB Meet schedule!
