As schools across the district wrap up their Terry Fox Run campaigns, donations in the thousands have been pouring in for the Terry Fox Foundation.

So far in SD42 students at Alexander Robinson elementary have raised the most money in support of cancer research across the country raising $2,700, $400 more than their goal of $2,300. And, as promised, principal Adam Stanley had his hair dyed blue live on Zoom, while teacher Todd Oleksyn had his head shaved.

Meanwhile students at Edith McDermott elementary raised $2,300 for the foundation without any incentives or rewards.
 
Thousands of students at most schools across the district have taken part in runs so far.
