It gives us immense satisfaction to share with you that, once again this year, we are participating in the Terry Fox Run, being held on Sunday, 19th February 2017 in our city for school children. The initiative is in the memory of Terrance Stanley, a Canadian athlete who initiated this marathon in 1980, at the age of 18, after being diagnosed with bone cancer. With one leg amputated, he embarked on a cross Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. The spread of cancer eventually forced him to end his quest after 143 days and 5373 kms and ultimately cost him his life. However his efforts resulted in a lasting worldwide legacy and is now the World’s largest one day fund raiser for cancer research.
We at Universal believe that children form ideas about who they are and how they fit into the world around them early in life. The attitudes and skills needed to make a positive contribution to make the world a better place and learn empathy needs to be encouraged and developed from an early age. We conduct several activities, organize many events and take part in many global events in this pursuit of ours. Participation in the Terry Fox run and raising funds for cancer research is also a part of this endeavor.
We appeal to all our parents to help us in raising funds for this noble and worthy cause and donate generously.

Please write your name, address, and phone no. on the back of the cheques / DD to avail 80G benefits.
Last day / date of submission : Kindly send the cheque/ DD in a sealed envelope by Friday, 10th February 2017 to the class teacher.
Together in the cause of good education.
