Students at Big Valley Public School raised nearly $2,500 during its annual Terry Fox run, held this past Wednesday, Sept. 21.

The school’s 81 students, ranging in age from Kindergarten to Grade 9 made either a 2.3 km trek through the community’s golf course, or the longer 3.2 km route that included a longer golf course hike and a walk through town. The students were joined by about 25 parents, siblings and other community members during the walk, according to Cheryl Bartley, who works at the school.

Even the youngest Kindergarteners made the 2.3 km walk.

“They did great for a bunch of little guys,” Bartley said. “And it was a great fall day.”

For the past several years, the school has raised within the same fundraising range as what was accomplished this year, with pledges and donation coming from the community and friends in the area.
