Team Schulich joins Terry Fox Run
Members of the Schulich community laced up their sneakers for the 36th annual Terry Fox Run in support of Cancer Research. This year Schulich assembled the largest team at York with over 70 members. In total Team Schulich raised over $5,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation.
The team was led by Co-Captains Sean Siddik (MBA 2003) and Ashelyn Fung (GBC Athletics Director and IMBA 2017). According to Siddik “this year’s team set the school’s fundraising record for the event.”
“We are so proud to once again exceed our fundraising goal of $3000 and it is because of the support from all levels of students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as community members that made it possible,” said Fung.
Participants ran the five and ten kilometre course around York University starting and ending at the new York University Stadium, which previously housed the athletics events at the Pan Am and Para-Pan Am Games. Runners finished the race with a lap around the state-of-the-art track.
This year the top fundraiser was Member of the International Advisory Council, Toronto Alumni Chapter and part-time sessional lecturer Gregory Pau (BBA ‘88 / MBA ‘89) collecting $1,295. Others finishing in the top five were: Susan Jackman (MBA ’05), Margarita Cargher (MBA ’18 candidate), Lilly Wong (MBA ’10) and Ika Janiszewski (iBBA ’19 candidate).
Siddik hopes that this year’s momentum will carry forward for years to come. “We really appreciate the contributions from various people who sponsored our team and helped us exceed our goals.”
