Over 465 kids from Rudolph Hennig Junior High got to enjoy the beautiful weather today (September 28) and raise money for a good cause.
So far, the 487 student population has raised over $4000 for the Terry Fox Foundation, the most out of any Elk Island Public School this year.
"We have a harder time these days raising money for other things, but the Terry Fox Run is always the biggest fundraiser we do in the year so obviously it's close to everybody's heart," said Rudolph Hennig Junior High counselor Lori Nelson.
Before the run started on Thursday morning (September 28), students got to watch a video on Terry Fox's legacy and listen to guest speakers.
"We also want to teach kids that they have the power to make a difference," added Nelson.
