Botha School supports legacy of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. Staff at Botha School have started a tradition where students are challenged to do their best raising funds in support of Cancer research.
This year Botha kids were challenged to raise $2,500. The school of 61 kids surpassed all expectations and raised $3,348 for cancer research.
As a result of the outstanding work of students, Botha teachers had to come god on their end of the bargain- engaging in stunts that were decided by students
Mrs. Burton had to wear high heels each day for a week. For those that know Ms. Burton- this is a challenge. Mr. Flieger had top fundraisers dump a bucket of 18 cracked eggs on his head.
Mrs. McMillan had to fill up her boots with chocolate pudding and walk around at recess with the kids.
Mrs. Maxwell had to kiss Missy the pot bellied pig.
Mrs. Boxma wore Dragon, an 8 foot boa constrictor around her neck.
Staff were pleased to sacrifice themselves a bit in support of this great cause. Botha school believes in teaching students to be gritty, and can think of no better example of grit and perseverance than Terry Fox.
