Terry Fox Run and Snips For Tips - September 21st

Parents and Guardians you are invited to join our SHA family on Friday September 21st at 10:30 am for our Terry Fox Run at Kinsmen Park. Students are asked to bring $2.00 to their homeroom teacher by Friday and become part of the Marathon of Hope.


Hello Sacred Heart Families,

This year our school will be participating in the Terry Fox School Run on Friday September 21st.

Terry Fox runs are 100% organized and operated by volunteers with 82 cents of every dollar raised going directly to cancer research. The Terry Fox Foundation operates independently with no corporate sponsor.

As a fundraising challenge, Mrs Volk told her students she would SHAVE HER HEAD if we reach the goal of $3000.00!! Her head will be shaved prior to the Terry Fox Run in front of the entire student body!

Students who raise $20.00 will enter a draw for a chance to cut one of the pony tails off Mrs.Volk. Students are encourage to fundraise online by setting up their own account via the school’s fundraising page. Students will also be given a pledge sheets for those wishing to do cash donations.   

Mrs.Volk has shaved her head in 2008 and 2013 with the proceeds going to the Cancer Society and Lindsay's Health Center (Antigonish, NS). Her hair has been donated to Love for Locks on both occasions and will again for this event.

This September we very much hope you consider sponsoring our school. Your kindness will truly impact the lives of so many fighting with cancer.
