The Great Canadian Hair-Do 2013
“I want to set an example that will never be forgotten.” Terry Fox, 1980
Terry’s message - that every person can make a difference - resonated with eyewitnesses to his transformative journey and with millions of supporters who continue to support his legacy. Each year, Terry Fox supporters seek new ways to make their mark on the fight against cancer. A great way to make your mark this year is to participate in The Great Canadian Hair “Do”.
What is it?
- Date: September 12th, 2013
- Time: 10am-4pm
- Location: Vari Hall
The Great Canadian Hair-Do helps raise awareness and donations for the Terry Fox Foundation. The best part is everyone is welcomed, and encouraged to participate. Here is your chance as York students/staff to “do” something they don’t do everyday, your chance to BE BRAVE TO SHAVE. If you are not as ambitious as some, we offer hair-dying as well!
Doing this will help bring awareness and help fund cancer research.
What if you don’t want to change your hair?
We will also be offering students and/or staffs various activities, such as button making, henna tattoo, games, and food! By participating, students/staffs donate money to Terry Fox Foundation which helps raising money for cancer research.
Volunteer with us?
We are always looking for volunteers to help with our event! This year we’re looking for 15-20 volunteers. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the York Community, meet new people, and also build your co-curricular record. Volunteers will have the opportunity to spread the word of fun things happening on campus, hand out giveaways and popcorn to the York Community.
This event is lead by York is U’s Core Events Ambassador, Ernest Boakye!
