DGH’s Terry Fox Fundraiser Has Begun!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH community, our school has kicked off its fundraiser for the Terry Fox Foundation.  Ms. Prins is heading up the Terry Fox Fundraiser and Terry Fox Run this year.  Ms. Prins is completing an LTO at DGH this year for Ms. McColl (Ms. McColl is working as a consultant for the TLDSB this year).


This fundraiser has special meaning for Ms. Prins and her family.  In the kickoff assembly last Friday, Ms. Prins’ brother, Jack, came to speak about his fight with cancer.  For those with much older sons and daughters, you may remember schools across the TLDSB raising money for Jack, in 2003, as he fought and successfully beat cancer.  Years later, Jack remains cancer free and is a passionate speaker on behalf of the Terry Fox Foundation.


Jack spoke about “how every cent counts” in the fight against cancer.


Ms. Prins’ goal for DGH this year is to raise $1500 (double what we raised last year).
