Yesterday, 20 students from our Centre participated with their educators, parents and siblings in our first ever Little Fox Run! It was an important event for us this year, since some very important people to us have been affected by cancer recently.
For the first time, in Salmo, students from the Elementary School, Secondary School and the Children's Centre ran at the same time. The preschool, kindergarten and grade one children ran in the school field, and the older children had a route marked around town.
It was a really nice event that felt very worthwhile.
