The Hill Academy Newsletter- September 27th, 2020

HILL Message:

This week, along with schools and communities across Canada, we will be participating in the 40th Anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope. 

Terry Fox is a true Canadian hero as an athlete, humanitarian and activist. On his run to raise money and awareness for cancer research, he ran the equivalent of a marathon a day for 143 days; which was an incredible accomplishment. Terry ultimately succumbed to this terrible and widespread disease, that has touched so many near to all of us. 

One of the L's in the HILL acronym stands for Legacy. His legacy continues to be a large part of Canadian culture. Every year, schools across the country honour his legacy through an organized run.
