Students at G.C. Huston Public School in Southampton continued the Marathon of Hope as they took part in their own Terry Fox Run on September 29. By collecting donations or contributing a toonie - all for cancer research - the legacy of Terry Fox was honoured and remembered.

Teacher Enid Johnson, helped the students warm up with some stretching and dance moves before they began their run around Fairy Lake, while Kindergarten classes ran multiple times around the school property.

The G.C. Huston cross-country team led the way for students with some going multiple times around the lake.

Students donned stickers, for who they were running for. Many listed grandparents, friends and family members who have been inflicted with cancer, while others simply wrote that they were running for “Terry”.

Donations are still being collect by students, with no amount totalled by press time.
