DGH’s Terry Fox Run

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Outstanding job today, Huskies!  DGH held its annual Terry Fox Run/Walk in the 3rd block this afternoon.  Students from JK through to grade 8 walked and ran from 2:15 to 3:15 and did an excellent job.  We had a few runners who particularly excelled (with one of our intermediate boys running almost the entire time – pretty impressive!).

Regardless of walking or running, our students were, overall, very well behaved and conducted themselves well.  Getting outside and walking for even an hour demonstrates effort and initiative!  It was also great to see a number of our older students being supportive of our younger students.

Thanks also to the staff involved in organizing the day (it went off without a hitch) and thanks also to staff for putting on the running shoes and getting out there!

Mr. Hetherington promises to be in full running shape for next year – running for an hour straight!
