Students at Ruth Betts School raised over $725 last week during Terry Fox Week. There were various fundraising events at the school throughout the week, keeping up the legacy of Terry Fox and his Marathon of Hope. On Monday, students collected pennies for pledges. The class that raised the most money received a classroom prize. On Tuesday, students raised money by holding a Terry Fox T-shirt raffle, and the grade 5 students participated in the division wide Terry Fox Run at Creekside Park. A popcorn sale was held on Wednesday during the morning and afternoon, and after school, students lined up to take three shots on a Bomber for a quarter. Ruth Betts mentors John Iron and Spencer Davis stood in as goaltenders, and students had to score three goals in order to have their name entered into a draw for an autographed Flin Flon Bomber hockey stick. The winner of the stick was Brady Bouvier. All of the money was collected and totaled on Friday, and draws were made for three Terry Fox T-shirts and one Ruth Betts T-shirt. Richard Stewart, Joeanne Pelletier and Ryan Ashdown were the winners of the Terry Fox shirts, while Kelsey Morrell was the winner of the Ruth Betts School T-shirt. All of the money collected during the week was turned over to the Terry Fox Foundation.
