Today my kids and I attended the annual Terry Fox run.
We were there to support the Terry Fox Foundation and one of our close friends.
A few days before the run I taught my 5 year old all about Terry Fox. She was amazed that a young man with only one leg aimed to run across Canada. She had so many questions about Terry and about cancer.
Today she loved running, walking and being pushed in the stroller during the run. She donated $4 from her piggy bank to the Terry Fox Foundation and is looking forward to participating again next year.
It’s not too late to teach your child about Terry Fox, a true Canadian Hero.
Our National School Run Day is September 27, 2012. You can find a lot of information by googling Terry Fox’s name or by going to The Terry Fox Foundation website.
