The virtues for the month of September were COURAGE and COURTESY.
We were inspired by Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. Terry Fox demonstrated outstanding amounts of courage in his journey across Canada to raise funds to cure cancer.
In a conversation with some of the students, we discussed the idea that if Terry Fox were alive today with the same type of cancer, he would not lose his leg or die due to cancer.
But more importantly, we thought, where would we be in our fight against cancer if we did not have Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope to motivate us?
