We are happy to accept any cheque donations and pledge sheets from your fundraising efforts. Please click here for a full list of instructions.
The 2021 Terry Fox School Run is set for Wednesday, September 29, 2021, or any date or duration that supports your fundraising efforts and enables all students school wide to take part.
Even if you can’t come together as a whole school, there are many ways for individual students or classrooms to take part and have fun and feel united. Visit our new and exciting individual/classroom/school wide based “Try Like Terry” challenge activities for 2021.
Schools can donate online or by pledge sheet. To collect online donations, schools can share their fundraising link on their website, email communications or social media. Sample messaging and images will be available to help you every step of the way. Online donating is safe, easy and donors can receive their receipts immediately. Pledge sheets are also available for download here. Schools are also welcome to order them in their toolkit at time of auto-renewal.
An email will be sent out to School Run Organizers with their school’s fundraising link, as well as an event organizer login and username to allow you to customize your school page. If you did not receive it, please contact us and we’ll be happy to share it with you.
If you received an email informing you that your school is auto-renewed, your school is already registered. If you haven’t received an email, please click here to register your school and receive a complimentary toolkit of promotional materials. 
Send an email to your Foundation Provincial Office with your updated contact information. Be sure to include your name, and the name and city of your school in your communication.
All schools that are auto-renewed (registered) will receive a complimentary toolkit of promotional materials in early September. This year’s toolkit will include dedication stickers, posters, minimum of 1 pledge sheet, campaign tips and a t-shirt to help you promote your event. Be sure to also check out our online resources.
All schools are welcome to fundraise using the method that works best for their school while following safety protocols. Donations can be collected online through your school’s fundraising link or by pledge sheets that are downloadable here, or included in your toolkit. If you are missing pledge sheets from your toolkit and would like a bulk shipment, please contact your Foundation Provincial Office directly.
The safety of your students is a top priority for us. We encourage all schools to follow provincial safety guidelines. If you are not able to assemble as a school for your event, please check out our classroom and individual based fundraising activities: “Try Like Terry” challenge page.
We are working on creating some exciting virtual options with a variety of guest speakers, including Fred Fox. In addition, our newly created school assembly video is always available for individual or classroom viewing. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months. 
T-shirts can be ordered directly from our website. Click here to place a bulk order for students and/or staff. Invoices are emailed to your School Run Organizer and shipments are sent directly to your school address. T-shirt sales are added to your school’s fundraising total as merchandise proceeds also support cancer research. 
A great way to help your school is to create a student fundraising page and share it you’re your friends and family. Simply search for your school name at terryfox.org, select “Set up a Student Page” and follow the steps to create a link. To collect donations using a pledge sheet, simply submit any cash or cheque donations you may have received, with your completed pledge sheet to their teacher. There is no minimum donation and all donations of $20 or more on a pledge sheet are automatically receipted.
