Spirit unbreakable for Masset’s Fox run

  • Sep. 15, 2003 6:00 p.m.

The weather co-operated beautifully for the 69 enthusiastic roller-blader’s, runners, walkers-(stroller carrying Sidney and Camryn/Kiwi-undaunted by the distance) and cyclists. The Tahayghen PAC challenged the Grades 6 & 7 students to bike the 10 km route. About 30 excited cyclists made up of Tahayghen teachers, students, principal and accompanied by Cst. David Dulude finished the 10 km in record time, and were all rewarded with refreshments at the school. Congratulations to the Tahayghen students and to everyone who participated and for meeting the challenge in true “Terry Fox” spirit.
