More Than 900 Westmount High School Students Taking to the Streets for Terry Fox
More than 900 students and staff from Westmount High School (4350 Ste Catherine Street West) will take to the streets on September 16 (9 am) for the third annual Terry Fox Walk ‘N Roll.
Organized by Physical Education Teacher and Leadership Coordinator Jeff Kosow, the annual event allows the students of Westmount High School to honour the legacy of Terry Fox via a three-kilometer walk through the city.
In advance of the Walk ‘N Roll, students will meet in the school’s auditorium to hear from Eddy Nolan, a cancer survivor and longtime caretaker with the English Montreal School Board. Nolan has participated in every Terry Fox Run since 1980 and honours his legacy on an annual basis by running a marathon every April 12 along Sherbrooke Street.
Over the past 14 years, Nolan has helped Roslyn School raise nearly $250,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation, including $35,000 for the 35th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope (2015).
