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.”
You can learn more about Jack’s courageous fight against cancer by clicking on this link to a local newspaper article from 2009.
Ms. Prins has set a goal of $1500 this year (about double what we raised last year). DGH community – let’s meet the goal!
