Students, staff and parents of Carlyle Elementary School took to the streets on Friday, Sept. 27 to raise money in the annual Terry Fox Run.
The students collected pledges and wore names of the people they were running for, and the cold, damp weather had no effect on their spirits. The children walked from the school down 3rd St. West across Coteau, to Main Street, all the way down to Carlyle Avenue. They turned east and walked up 5th St. East, turning onto Riddell Ave. and then heading north on 4th St. East back to the school.
As you can see from the photo both here and in this week's "Observed At" page, the older children did a great job of making sure the younger students made it to the school, whether it was a helping hand or a piggy-back ride.
The students raised just over $6,000 towards fighting this horrid disease and for their efforts they earned a movie night, along with popcorn, in the gym.
