The Terry Fox Run: A Tradition Worth Continuing

By Josh Blatt

Social Issues Head Editor

Every year, the students of Forest Hill walk, run, and donate money in honour of the great Canadian Terry Fox. Terry Fox, despite losing one of his legs to cancer, decided to run across Canada in order to raise money to cure the complex sickness he faced. In total, over $750 million dollars have been raised in the humanitarian’s name. This event not only collects money for the paramount issue of cancer research, but gives students and staff the opportunity to take a break from their busy schedules to get active and celebrate a truly inspiring man. Terry Fox is a person who will be remembered for his determination and selflessness and Forest Hill plans to continue celebrating his work and raising money in his name for a very long time.

Humans of FHCI – Nurdan K.

By Jacob Calderone

What brings you the most happiness?

It would definitely have to be coffee. Coffee is my life. Especially before school, because school is tiring. I love to get my coffee at Tim Hortons, especially the Iced Latte with a shot of espresso. I need to have the espresso to kick start my morning.

What is your greatest struggle right now?

That’s a good question. I think it would have to be balancing my school and social life. Since I am in grade 12 now, I need to focus on my studies, but I also want to enjoy my last year of high school. For example, I want to hang out with my girls like all the time, but I can’t because of school. I am still working on trying to find a balance, yet I hope that my last year at FHCI will be amazing!

What motto do you live by?

I live by the motto, “Treat other the way you want to be treated.” I think this is so important because especially nowadays with social media, people can be really mean. Not just me, but if everyone lived their lives with this motto in mind, our world would be a much happier place. Everyone would respect one another, which is so so important.

By Leora Trefler

Who is your role model?

My role model is my mom. From the day I was born she’s inspired me, taught me how to be strong, respectful and help others no matter what. I really admire her as a person and want to be just like her when I grow up.

What is one thing people do not know about you?

One thing most people don’t know about me is that I bring a blanket to every class because the rooms are too cold. His name is Albert by the way.
