The students and schools of the North Vancouver School District have a history of reaching out and supporting worthy causes. One such deserving cause is the Terry Fox Foundation, supporting Cancer research. This past week, I received a note of appreciation from the School Coordinator of the Terry Fox School National School Run Day Program.
We are very grateful of the fact that schools in your district continued to support The Terry Fox Foundation this year. I am delighted to be able to inform you that schools in North Vancouver School District raised $23,618.74 for cancer research through Terry Fox Runs in 2011.
The Terry Fox Foundation is proud to say that 85 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to cancer research. We appreciate the efforts to raise funds, so we make every effort to ensure that fundraising and administrative costs remain as low as possible.
Well done, North Vancouver School District!
