How to run your Find 52:Pass the Baton event
We’ll provide your school with pledge sheets, batons – and a Really Big Shoe into which runners and fans can “toss a toonie.” Add your name to your school’s pledge sheets. We’ll curl them into your own batons and take them to St. Lucia! Throughout their five-day relay, St. Lucia students carry Ontario school batons. Each day, we’ll post pictures of the 200km relay so students in both countries can see just how far their support for literacy has gone!
Pick a day before the end of the school year that suits you. Go indoors or out: it’s your choice.
Elementary schools can hold their event during a scheduled Track & Field Day. High schools might, like Centennial CVI did in Guelph by having grade competitions. No track? No problem. We want schools to get creative so they can fill their Really Big Shoes with toonies. Ultimately, it’s about showing support for literacy and having some fun! Schools that participated in 2017 are listed below.
Here’s what Find 52: Pass the Baton schools receive
Schools should confirm particiaption by e-mail. We’ll ship you a Really Big Shoe. Posters, pledge sheets and morning announcements– they’re all downloadable on this page.

A road is a song, a poem, a movie, an adventure. It's hope and optimism, and inquisitiveness.The Angry Isle
The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.
All men should strive to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.(1879-1955)
