Terry Fox Run 2011

On Sunday, September 18, 2011, the Scarlet Key Honour Society of McGill University participated in the annual Terry Fox Run in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Elder Zete Brother and Scarlet Key Honour Society member Nick Drew invited the actives and Fall rushes of the Alpha Psi chapter to join the cause. The race took place at the top of Mount Royal and was an event enjoyed by all. With 10 Brothers (and one rush) making the early 9:30 meeting time, those who weren’t in attendance happily donated money to this great cause. Among all the brothers running, Brother Emerson Shiu and Brian Farnan started the 5k race in last place and finished in first and second place, in that order, respectively. As well, Brother Max Gubert managed to finish the 10km race in a very impressive time!

Collective donations totalled over $350 between actives, rushes and parental fundraising. This is the first time Alpha Psi has participated in the Terry Fox Run. The philanthropy committee has now pledged to participate in the run every year. The Alpha Psi Chapter ran under the Scarlet Key Honour Society, however it aims to have its own team next year.

At the end of the run, all friends, parents and fellow students got together and enjoyed some time in the sun. It was truly a great day among friends and family.

This is the first Philanthropy event of the Fall semester for the Alpha Psi chapter. Be sure to look out for the boys participating in the Right-to-Play Spin-a-Thon as well as the return of Brosaica at this year’s CASCO event.
