Over the years, students and staff from across all schools within the Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board (NPSC) have now raised over $150,000 to support cancer research. Along with raising $16,367.45 this year, the board has reached a new collective milestone, earning a plaque of recognition from the Terry Fox Foundation. 


Of this cumulative fundraising total, we are pleased to highlight the students, staff and community of St. Theresa Catholic School in Callander has raised over $92,000 over the years. In addition, St. Theresa has been recognized in the top 25 elementary schools for Terry Fox run fundraisers by the national foundation for their accomplishments for the 2022 school year.


“NPSC is proud to participate in the Terry Fox Run and honoured to be recognized for the fundraising efforts of our community over the many years. On behalf of our Board of Trustees, we thank the Terry Fox Foundation for their tremendous hard work and dedication to continuing Terry’s Marathon of Hope,” shares NPSC Board Chair, Shawn Fitzsimmons.

The Terry Fox Foundation was founded in 1988 and has since raised over $850 million in support of cancer research. The annual Terry Fox Run campaign is the worldwide fundraising event where communities across Canada and various countries across the world host their own fundraiser walk or run in the month of September. This year, NPSC had eight schools across the board participate in the school run initiative for the fundraiser in the 2022 school year.


“We continue to be moved by the service leadership demonstrated by our all of our NPSC students, staff and parent communities who have supported this worthy cause over the years,” said NPSC Director of Education, Paula Mann. “We extend our gratitude and congratulations to all of our NPSC schools for their continuous efforts that have raised an astounding total to support cancer research, providing hope for a cure,” Mann continued.
