Help Keep Terry's Promise "Not to Give Up!"
41 years ago, Terry Fox ran his Marathon of Hope.  Terry stopped running outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario on Sept 1, 1980 after running 5,373 km; his primary cancer had spread to his lungs. Before returning to BC for treatment Terry said, “I’m gonna do my very best. I’ll fight. I promise I won’t give up.” 

Handsworth let us "not give up" either.  During the week of Sept 20-24 we will be collecting Toonies $2 for Terry and Fivers $5 for Fox in classes, OR donate online   HERE !      To keep everyone safe we encourage you to set aside some time between now and September 24 to take a walk, run, hike or bike ride for Terry.
