Terry Fox Run in Kenaston: Wednesday, September 28, 2016 was a cooler, but pleasant day to hold the Terry Fox Walk in Kenaston. Students and staff left the school to meet the rest of the community at the Veteran's Park in downtown Kenaston for a group picture. There the journey began for about 175 people, down to the town's famous Snowman, then over to Mick's Way – The Kenaston Walking Trail. After turning at the skating rink, the group continued to walk towards Kenaston School where students and staff stayed to enjoy their barbecue burger lunch and drink supplied by the Riverbend Coop and Affinity Credit Union, while the rest of the community members continued on to the Coop. Upon arrival back downtown, the staff from the Coop and Credit Union, prepared and served more delicious burgers for all community members.
A big thank-you goes out to the Affinity Credit Union, Kenaston Branch and the Riverbend Coop, Kenaston Store for sponsoring the burger lunch with all proceeds going back to the Terry Fox Foundation. Also a big thank-you to all generous community members, families, and businesses for their support and donations towards cancer research that reached well over $5500.00! About a week prior to the walk, a kick-off was held in Kenaston School Gym. At that time, a Terry Fox video was shown and Mrs. Farrell had a Trivia Contest about Terry Fox for the students to participate in. THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
