Dig deep!

Last Thursday Kim Sparling from the Terry Fox foundation visited our school again. She spoke to BCSD students about her battle with cancer and how she survived. She brought her running leg, which she calls “black Betty”, and let the students touch it to see how it felt. The students asked her lots of interesting questions. She told us she had to “dig deep” when she was diagnosed with cancer at 18 years of age and how she was determined to survive. We also found out that Kim is training hard and hopes to compete at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio. We wish her all the best.

Thanks for sharing your inspiring story, Kim!
