Exciting Achievements at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary School's Terry Fox Run

for the Pearson News by Meaghan Macro, Pierre Elliott Trudeau Phys. Ed. Specialist

The students of Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary School recently participated in their annual Terry Fox Run, and this year was filled with enthusiasm and exceptional achievements. The students were not only challenged to raise $8000 for the Terry Fox Foundation, but they were also motivated by an exciting incentive.

Throughout the event, the Terry Fox thermometer was regularly updated, and announcements were made to keep the students informed about the amount they had raised. The students displayed remarkable enthusiasm and eagerness to reach their fundraising goal because, if successful, they had the unique opportunity to tape one of their Physical Education teachers to the gym wall.

On the day of the run, students joined forces, and it was an unforgettable moment when it was announced that they had not just met but surpassed their fundraising goal, reaching a grand total of $11,224.00. The students were overjoyed by this remarkable accomplishment.

On October 26th, each grade was invited to the gym where every student and staff member had the chance to place their piece of tape on their Physical Education teacher, Mr. C, affixing him to the gym wall. The event was even streamed live via Zoom so that classes could witness this exciting moment. The ultimate question on everyone’s mind was, “Will Mr. C stay stuck to the wall?”.

With a countdown, the crates supporting Mr. C were removed, and to the delight of all, he indeed stayed stuck to the gym wall! The students and staff were all smiles, and it was a truly memorable and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

The atmosphere was filled with a sense of accomplishment and community spirit. It was undoubtedly an unforgettable experience.
