Meals on Wheels Challenge

Posted on: March 17th, 2021.

“This has been an absolute record for us and could not have been achieved without our amazing community donors, such as the J.T. Clark Family Foundation. They helped to encourage further donations in the beginning of the campaign, and generously donated $10,000 to our campaign total. With their matched funding offer and our work confirming early donations, the J.T. Clark Family Foundation has generously donated $10,000 to our campaign total. Talk about a springboard to a banner fundraising year when our community needs it the most!

Our organization is simply speechless when it comes to the generosity and heart of this community. We are so appreciative of your kindness this season – something to help bring holiday cheer to the end of an unpredictable year!”

Did JTCFF Challenge Make A Difference?

A few quotes from Betty Daniels. (Ex. Dir.) regarding the role of JTCFF in success of MOW campaign: 

Dec. 30th: I absolutely cannot believe this success, and I know JTCFF’s early effort on our behalf truly helped us reach this amazing point.  It is beyond what I had even hoped for, and it is going to make such a huge difference to us as we head into the New Year.  

Jan. 11th: This is unbelievable – includes mail in donations and online through Canada Helps. This total does not include the donation from the Clark Family Foundation. I’m speechless at the generosity, and again so grateful for truly helping us jump start this.  It is so very helpful as we begin our budgeting process for the coming year.  

Social Media Post in December: “Let’s start this Monday off with some AMAZING News! We have been absolutely blown away by our community support this Letter Campaign. To date, our campaign has brought in almost $44,000! This has been an absolute record for us and could not have been without our amazing community donors, such as the J.T. Clark Family Foundation. They helped to encourage further donations in the beginning of the campaign, and generously donated $10,000 to our campaign total. Our organization is simply speechless when it comes to the generosity and heart of this community. We are so appreciative of your kindness this season – something to help bring holiday cheer to the end of an unpredictable year!”

Fredericton and Oromocto Students Try Like Terry!

Posted on: March 3rd, 2021.

A global pandemic couldn’t stop 13,000 students in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas from safely supporting their community. Thirty schools with students aged 3-18 took part in the 2020 Terry Fox School Run. They had an exciting, big goal in front of them that would help to increase their positive impact on people facing cancer: if they could collectively raise $20,000, The JT Clark Family Foundation would contribute an additional $20,000.

We’re proud to announce that these amazing young people surpassed their goal and raised $23,336 in support of life-changing cancer research. Including the donation from The JT Clark Family Foundation, these students have raised an incredible $43,336!

During a challenging year, Terry’s Fox’s legacy of hope has helped to inspire people of all ages to do their best and support those in need.

Thank you to these outstanding young people and their communities for supporting Terry Fox’s dream of a world without cancer.

Fredericton Area Students Break Fundraising Record in Support of Cancer Research

Posted on: April 15th, 2020.

In the Fall of 2019, twenty-three schools in Fredericton worked together to pursue Terry Fox’s dream of a world without cancer. Each of the schools registered to take part in the annual Terry Fox School Run and, thanks to the JT Clark Family Foundation, were given a special opportunity to double their impact on the condition that they share an ambitious goal. The challenge was simple – if the schools raised a collective total of $17,500, the Clark Foundation would match with $17,500. This goal was a significant increase in funds raised by the same schools in the previous year, but also represented one of Terry Fox’s defining traits – setting big goals and working hard to achieve them.

With the help of the Fredericton community, these 10,000 students, aged 3-18, achieved this ambitious goal and, including the challenge funds from The JT Clark Family Foundation, raised $40,180!!

These funds will enable The Terry Fox Foundation to fund life-changing cancer research, including the M4 (Multiple Myeloma Molecular Monitoring) Study lead by Dr. Tony Reiman at the University of New Brunswick.
