Terry Fox Foundation Fundraiser – “Every Cent Counts!”

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH community, we were a little slow in getting going with the Terry Fox Run this school year – but we are quickly amping things up!  Our Terry Fox Run takes place this Friday, September 29th beginning around 2:15 pm.

 

Sadly, cancer has impacted almost every Canadian family.  The Terry Fox Foundation (which is where the money we raise will be donated to), donated $26.6 million to cancer research projects in 2015-2016 alone.  This money is used for a wide range of cancer research.  The advances made through research benefit people throughout the world.

 

Remember what Jack Prins told us at our assembly on September 22nd: “Every cent counts.”

Ms. Prins has set a goal of $1500 this year (about double what we raised last year).  DGH community – let’s meet the goal!
