Morrin students got a taste of a warm fall day to stretch their legs and participate in their annual Terry Fox Run, yesterday September 25.

"It just feels good to at least know, that I'm trying to run for someone," said Morrin student, Meleena Olsen. "And that they can know, up above or where ever they are, that I'm trying to support them and help them."

Students ran a 1.6km circuit as many times as they could from 2 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.

"I feel really great because I'm running for someone who means a lot for me," another student, Lilly Robinson, said. "My grandpa Scott died of cancer. It just feels really good (to run)."

One common goal stood out with many students that DrumFM talked to. That these children were running for those battling cancer whether they were directly involved in their life or not. Morrin School collected five dollars a student to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society.

"My grandma just recently passed away to cancer," explained grade 8 student, Alyssa Wilkins. "And, well... it really just means a lot. Everyone showing their support towards cancer research."
