FRED FOX TO SPEAK AT MACKAY CENTRE
MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 8, 2011 – Fred Fox, father of inspirational humanitarian, athlete and cancer research activist Terry Fox will be speaking to students at the Mackay Centre (3500 Decarie Blvd) on Friday, September 9 at 1 p.m.
Fox, who continues the work of his son through the Terry Fox Foundation, will be speaking to students in advance of 31st Terry Fox Run, an annual tribute to Terry Fox which takes place across Canada every September.
Since 1992, the Mackay Centre and Philip E. Layton School have teamed up with Westmount High School to raise over $38,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation through a “Walk, Roll and Run”. Annually, the three schools come together to participate in an inspirational and tear-jerking morning of joint fitness activities, which culminates in a 30 minute walk, roll and run around the Westmount High School track.
The 10th installment of the “Walk, Roll and Run” is scheduled for September 28th at Westmount High School (4350 Ste Catherine St. W).
