DGH – The Terry Fox Challenge is Out There!


DGH has already kicked off its annual Terry Fox Fundraiser.

Dr. George Hall students will be participating in our school’s Terry Fox Run in the 3rd block of Thursday, September 29th.


Terry Fox might just be Canada’s greatest hero!  Did you know that he ran for 143 days – running a marathon each day.  He stopped only when the return of cancer forced him to end his run.


So, Huskies, how can you keep Terry Fox’s dream alive?  By raising money and donating it to the Terry Fox foundation.  You can raise money in 2 different ways:

– by getting a pledge sheet from Mr. Hetherington and returning the pledge sheet and money to the school, or

– by donating money via the Terry Fox website (more Information will be on this below).
