Terry Fox Run in RCHK
Held every year at RCHK since 2009, the Terry Fox Run is an opportunity for the Renaissance College community to join together in a spirit of determination and hope that cancer can be beaten.
The Terry Fox is an opportunity to combine sport with charity and fun. With the support of their families, students are expected to select a run or walk of appropriate challenge. Parents are encouraged to join in the challenge too!
Students will make their choice based on the distances they have discussed and practiced running towards in PE lessons.
Year 1 & 2
Run 1km with a family member, family friend or staff member
Run 3km with a parent or on their own
Year 4 - 6
Select a distance ( 3 or 6km) and challenge themselves to run it with determination
Each year, the Terry Fox Foundations gives Renaissance College an opportunity to recognize cancer survivors in our community. As "Terry's Team" these people represent the hope that cancer can be beaten and that research is bringing us closer to a cure. We were proud to have Yu Chui Yee, Hong Kong Olympian, joining us the share her personal story of hope and courage
Having challenged themselves together, participants celebrate together in their year level groups upon returning to the college campus. Games and activities will be organised on the Multi-Purpose Pitch (MPP). A fun dance party led by Utah Lee will be held in the Performing Arts Centre (PAC). DIY activities will happen in tents on the basketball courts, and a bake sale organised by the Nutriagent Team will be held in the undercover area. Children will return to their classrooms after the festivities to pack up and get ready for dismissal.
And if you would like to run even further, join the community Terry Fox Run on Saturday, November 9th! There will be 3, 5, or 10km routes. There will also be activities, performances, food, drink, wellness booths, and much more when you’re done, too.
