Schools in Sparwood and Elkford recently took part in the Terry Fox run.
Raising an astounding amount was Rocky Mountain Elementary School, coming up with almost $2200. “Our goal was to raise more money than we did last year,” said Principal Shirley McGale. “We did that, and we rewarded the kids with a day of extended recess and a hat day,” she said.
Elkford Secondary School, Frank J Mitchell Elementary School, and Sparwood Secondary School also took place in the run, collectively raising over $3000 for the cause.
