Hundreds of students from schools around Eeyou/Eenou Istchee took part in Terry Fox Runs/Walks this fall.
In some cases, students raised funds for cancer research; in others, they simply participated, joining others in their community to raise awareness.
"In our community, students, staff, parents/guardians, community members, public security, the police and Fire Department participated," said Wabannutao Eeyou School Academic Counsellor Daisy Fry. "It was a great way to bring everyone in Eastmain together."
In Ouje-Bougoumou, the local fire prevention and police joined in the walk with staff and students.
And in Mistissini, dozens of students, staff, parents and community members raised more than $5406 for cancer research through their pledge efforts for the walk/run.
