September 11, 2019 (Maxville, ON) – Every September, Terry Fox’s brother, Fred Fox, visits schools across Canada to share Terry’s story. Yesterday he visited Maxville Public School and Thousand Islands Elementary School (TIES) as part of his cross-Canada tour.

While at Maxville Public School, Fox was part of a special assembly to honour Oarn Crawford, a grade 6 student at the school, for the fundraising he’s done for the Terry Fox Foundation.

Crawford has always participated in his school’s Terry Fox Run day, but for the past three years has also been participating in the Cornwall Terry Fox Run. To date, he has raised more than $3,000.

For the 2019 Cornwall Terry Fox run, Crawford set a fundraising goal of $400, but significantly surpassed that goal raising more than $1,000. “I raise money to help kids with cancer,” explained Crawford. “I will continue to raise money until Cornwall’s Terry Fox Run on Sunday.”

In addition to the Cornwall run, Crawford will participate in his school’s run on September 26.  

Fox presented Crawford with an appreciation gift during the assembly and gave the school a Terry Fox book for their library.

During Fox’s visit at TIES, the school was awarded a pennant to signify 15 years of participation in the Terry Fox School Run. TIES will participate in their 15th annual run this year on September 26.
