Me and a few friends of mine recently went rock climbing at Aspire Climbing. There, we all climbed some pretty difficult walls, but all of us tried harder and harder to make it to the top. And with the support of each other and our coaches, we spent an hour and a half climbing really fun, tough walls! I thought this was a great example of persevering, pushing yourself and others forward, and helping bring out the best in your friends.
Another good example of persevering is Terry Fox, who almost ran all the way across Canada with one leg (due to cancer). But persevering can’t only be showed in sports. It can be shown in schoolwork, public speaking, hobbies, anything...even writing this article! “Keep calm and persevere on!”
