Dear Pilgrim Wood Families:

Traditionally at Pilgrim Wood we support the Terry Fox Foundation to help in Cancer Research.  Our Terry Fox Run is scheduled for Friday, September 28th with a rain date of Monday, October 1st.  Your children having been learning about Terry and his legacy in class and today they had an assembly with a representative from the Terry Fox Foundation.

Our Pilgrim Wood goal for this year is $1500.00.  We need your help!  As of 2:00 today, we were only at $340.

In order to meet our goal we are hoping you will consider contributing to this worthy cause and be a part of this mission to STOP CANCER.  We are asking you to consider contributing in at least one of three ways: 

  1. Terry Fox official website dedicated to Pilgrim Wood P. S.  This way you can officially donate and get a tax receipt.  (Please copy and paste)   www.terryfox.ca/PilgrimWoodPSOakville
  2. Collect toonie donations for the Terry Fox run in the classroom.  So far we have collected $160.00 by this method. 
  3. There will be a big jar for Terry Fox at the School BBQ on Thursday, Sept 27th.   

Your financial contributions for helping our Pilgrim Wood Community to reach our goal of $1500. is very much needed and appreciated.  We want to help continue Terry's dream that he started with his Marathon of Hope to support Cancer Research!
