This year the students will be walking and running once a week during their Physical Education time. Our goal is to cover the incredible 5373 km distance that Terry did in his Marathon of Hope. Come back for periodic updates on our distance travelled.
- As of Sept 25th we have covered 280km, almost the distance of St. John's to Gander NL.
- Week two of our walking and running has seen a little bit of competition brewing between some classes, this week we covered 360.6 km. This brings us over 640km travelled and puts us just past South Brook Junction, NL where Terry was on Day 15 of his Marathon of Hope.
- Week three has seen a slow down in our laps with 742 completed this week. That adds another 189.2 km to our total, bringing us up to 830 km, just short of Port au Basques NL, where Terry was on Day 24 of his run.
- Week four was a nice week for walking and the school added another 977 laps to our total. So far our walking and running is now over 1078km, leaving us just 200km short of Sheet Harbour, NS where Terry was on day 33 of his run.
