A big thank you to everyone involved with the exceptional fundraising efforts for the 40th anniversary of the Terry Fox Run for cancer research.
Every journey begins with a single step, and there were many uphill steps that followed the first one on the Grade 9 Duke of Edinburgh Adventure Hike last Thursday, September 17th, at Blomidon Provincial Park.
Our Grade 9 students hit the ground running this year. They worked their way through the initial orientation and on the first Friday of classes, they started their Bronze level of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award training. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the program, Bronze is the first level in the Duke of Edinburgh program and is an established feature here at KES.
Here on our KES campus, we have our own cancer stories. Judy DesRoches, our Head of Female Boarding and Administrative Assistant, has been an inspiration for our School community. The mother of three was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019. Her positive spirit and personal determination are recognized by all. Please click here for her inspiring story. It is this kind of motivation that makes taking part in the Terry Fox Run on Sunday easy.
All students, staff and alumni can register for this year’s 40th Anniversary event by clicking on this direct Windsor/King’s-Edgehill link. It will be a “One Day. Your Way.” event, and I look forward to seeing the photos of students and their families walking, running, cycling or hiking their self-designed 5K routes. Photos should be submitted to Monica Schafer, Director of Student Life on Sunday.
Thank you for your participation.
