EWC's Media contacts
One of the largest events in Canadian history has become an EWC tradition: The Terry Fox National School Run Day.
Our 133 participants, registered in Sports and Fitness week, ran enthusiastically on the same day as 9,000 Canadian schools and over 3 million students, participating in the Terry Fox Run for cancer research on Friday, September 26, 2008.
EWC's Director General, Linda Brunet, signalled the start of the 4th consecutive year of participation for EWC under a perfect sky. Weeks before their arrival in Ottawa, all registered teenagers fundraised in their own respective areas of the country for this Run of Hope.
This year, some of our employees also donned the special tshirt made by EWC for the run, and joined our participants to take up the challenge. The leading runners, three boys, ran the 8 km circuit in only 28 minutes! Congratulations to all our runners. A collective donation of $1,600 was given to the Terry Fox Foundation, thanks to the generosity of our runners and their supporters.
