Pelican raises funds for Fox
Pelican Falls First Nations High School students have raised close to $10,000 since it started the annual Terry Fox Run.
The school held their 7th annual Terry Fox Run, Sept. 27 raising $1,700 which added to the amount from previous years stands at $9,830.00. Along with the money, a large amount of hair was donated towards cancer research from the past and present students.
The Empathy Club and Student Council jointly coordinated the event. There were a number of activities throughout the day. Students sold one-dollar stickers identifying the people they would run or walk for. Kookum was a common person the students would run for. They also watched the movie made about Terry Fox in the gymnasium. But the the highlight of the day had to be the shave-a-thon. This event had the atmosphere of an auction as the students pooled resources or dug deep into their pockets to pay off the challengers amount to shave their heads. The day ended with the walk and run to the beaver dam and back.
