Here are the details about our upcoming Terry Fox Run. This is an amazing event & a fantastic organization to support!
Look out for pledge forms in Note Totes this week with a golden letter.
Last year our school raised a record $11,009.66 for the Terry Fox Foundation. We were one of the top 25 Elementary fundraisers in Ontario & the top elementary fundraiser in Ottawa! In the past 9 years, Hilson has raised a grand total of $34,944.51 for the foundation!
This is a big year… Hilson’s 10th Terry Fox Run! Our 2018 school wide goal will be to fundraise a total of $3540.00 or $10 per student.
Date: Thursday, September 27th
Time: 10:50 assembly, 11:30 - 12:00 run
Every year the Hilson staff gets a little wild with their fundraising motivators to entice students & their families to donate. Each class sets a class goal and if the class reaches their goal, teachers follow through on their promised motivators. Last year, the Kinder team let the Kinders paint the pavement on the play structure yard and dressed up as fairies for the day. The year before Ms. Saraj & Ms. Espinoza let the Kinders paint their clothes, Mme Raquel let the Kinder team cut 8 inches of her hair (to donate to Wigs for Kids) & Ms. Hallard ate crickets! What will we do this year?!
Donations can be made online directly to Hilson’s Terry Fox page:
Cheques must be made out to The Terry Fox Foundation.... NOT to the school!
Cash donations can be sent in with your child, please put the $ in the pledge envelopes you receive.
