Reminder: "Solo Georgia Strait Crossing" Fundraiser

Division 9 Parent, Don Urquhart, is solo paddling in an Outrigger Canoe across the Georgia Strait from Nanaimo to Vancouver, this May!

You're invited to help him reach his fundraising goal for the Charles Dickens Elementary School — 100% of the funds raised will go directly to the school.

Don will also be visiting Divisions 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19 to share his experience of goal setting, preparation and awareness of oceans. 

You can support his Dickens Fundraising Initiative here at

And follow his journey here on Facebook
