LDSS students participate in annual Terry Fox Run
by Tamara Crawford
Lakefield District Secondary School (LDSS), joined several other schools in the Peterborough and surrounding areas at Trent University on Friday, October 18 to start their annual Terry Fox Run. It was originally set for Wednesday but was cancelled due to weather conditions.
Over 100 high school students from LDSS raised $10 or more, and joined together to show their support for the trip to Terry Fox.
Everyone walked from Trent University down to Nichol’s Oval where speeches and songs took place.
LDSS Grade 12 student Kiersten Andrews attended the Terry Fox Run alongside classmates Annie Volpe, Mykelti Jackson, Mikayla Monahan, and Rachelle Leclerc.
“The Terry Fox Run is a great way to raise money for cancer. Everyone enjoys being outside and being able to help out for such a great cause,” says Andrews.
Kiersten Andrews, as well as Hayden Brown from LDSS, had the opportunity to sing Drift Away by Uncle Kracker in front of the crowds at Nichol’s Oval. Students started to walk around 11:00 a.m. from Trent.
The Terry Fox Run is an annual fundraiser for cancer research. Students from around Peterborough County take part in the fundraiser.
