Elk Valley students take part in Terry Fox

Sparwood and Elkford schools raised money and ran for Terry Fox.

Sparwood Secondary School students take off on the Terry Fox Run.

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 an 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.
