Catch me if you clan
“Even though I'm not running anymore, we still have to try to find a cure for cancer. Other people should go ahead and try to do their own thing now.” - Terry Fox
 
Inspired by Terry Fox’s legacy, on Friday, September 24, Branksome hosted the first ever Catch Me If You Clan Terry Fox Cancer Research Fundraiser. The event was an exciting version of the Amazing Race. All eight clans were instructed to run through a set course that was spread throughout the campus. Five cooperative tasks were set up, on different areas of the course, for each clan to complete. Each clan took off from the start line within 45 seconds of each other, with the goal of catching and overtaking the clan in front of them. The clan that completed the course in the fastest time received the most clan points.
 
McAlpine crossed the finish line in an astounding nine minutes flat, to take first place. Scott streaked across the line only twenty-five seconds later. Ross picked up third place finishing only sixty seconds behind the leader.
 
However, clan points will not be rewarded quite yet as students are currently raising money for the Terry Fox Foundation. The results of the race will be combined with the amount of money raised per clan, to determine the overall event winner!
 
Thank you to all who came out to participate in the event and to all who support the Terry Fox Foundation.
