Terry Fox Run

The Terry Fox Run is an annual non-competitive charity event held in numerous regions around the world in commemoration of Canadian cancer activist Terry Fox, and his Marathon of Hope, and to raise money for cancer research.

Terry Fox is a Canadian hero. In 1980, with one leg having been amputated, he embarked on an east to west cross-Canada run, running a marathon a day, to raise money and awareness for cancer research

The yearly run is a must-attend on the calendars of families, sports enthusiasts, philanthropists and UAE residents. The run fuels charitable donations for local cancer research and commemorates the indelible mark that Terry Fox left on his fight against cancer.

The 8.5 Km Run will start and end at the East Plaza on the Abu Dhabi Corniche at Al Sahil Beach and will take the direction towards the Mina Zayed Port. Onsite registration and t-shirt pick up starts at 7:00 A.M. and the run commences at 9:00 A.M.

Sweatshirts …

Returning to school with cooler weather and adjusting from temperatures back home (for some of you), reminder that you can only wear ACS uniform logo’d sweatshirts and hoodies, or hoodies from Viper Pit in the uniform colours). You can wear your ACS team hoodies on Thursday and on game day (for season 2 athletes).

If you are cold, buy a hoodie/sweater that has the proper ACS logo or borrow one from the HS Office.

Any questions or concerns, come and check with me.

Ms Donison
