CISB hosted its inaugural Terry Fox Run at the end of this semester. This international fundraiser for cancer research was made possible through the collaboration of The Terry Fox Foundation and the enthusiastic participation of the CISB student community.

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.

The success of this event is owed to the efforts of our Grade 11 students, who skillfully organized and participated in the run under the guidance of the DP coordinator. From meticulous planning, ensuring safety, to promoting the event and fostering enthusiasm among their peers, the students displayed passionate leadership and dedication.

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.

We extend a heartfelt thank you to the CISB community for their active involvement and generous contributions. As we eagerly anticipate future editions of this event, we are reminded of the collective power we possess to create positive change in the world.
