Morinville schools honoured the legacy of Terry Fox last week by participating in the Terry Fox Run. Here are some pictorial highlights of the events.

MPES students Alexin Black and Taebren Gordon just completed the first lap around the field and were greeted by principal Wayne Rufiange.
Students, staff, teachers, and parents participated in the Terry Fox Run held at Ecole Notre Dame School Elementary School on Sept. 24. Phys Ed teacher Tina McKinnon said this year was the sixth year for the school’s contribution to the Fox Foundation and estimated the schools donation to be about $500.

Jets 0 for 2 over the weekend
After taking back-to-back victories on opening weekend, the Morinville Jets lost both of their games over the weekend.
The Jets were defeated 6-4 by the Fort Saskatchewan Hawks Friday night and took a 6-2 pounding from the Stony Plain Flyers at home Sunday night, a game where all the Flyers’ goals were scored on the power play.
The club takes to the road this week for a Friday game against the Beaumont Chiefs, then returns to home ice for a Tuesday night contest against the Edmonton Mustangs Oct. 8. Game time is 8:30 p.m. at the Ray McDonald Sports Centre.
