The Terry Fox Run holds a special significance as it honors the spirit of Terry Fox, a remarkable individual who was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) in his right leg in 1977. Terry witnessed the suffering of fellow cancer patients, which ignited a deep desire to make a difference. He embarked on a cross-country run, the Marathon of Hope, to raise funds for cancer research.
Reflecting on the event’s success, organizer Mr. Vishwas Kulkarni shared, “This will be an annual event that will help us continue the legacy of Terry Fox and support cancer research.” His words echo our school’s values of community engagement, student leadership, and global citizenship, which Terry Fox exemplified throughout his inspiring journey.
At CISB, we provide a collaborative and experiential learning environment where students are encouraged to make connections, explore their passions, and engage with the world around them. The Terry Fox Run is a testament to our commitment to holistic education that nurtures not only academic success but also community and social responsibility.
