Homecoming is just around the corner, which means it’s time for the annual Health Fun Run/Walk Challenge!  
Our new Dean, Dr. Brenda Merritt, challenges each Health School to show their Dal and School spirit by submitting the best team to the President’s Fun Run/Walk.

The Challenge details:

Each Health School recruits a team to participate on race day – Saturday October 14th. Teams are evaluated based on a set of criteria. The best team wins $500 towards a School Social.
The President’s Fun Run/Walk is a three-campus run, jog, walk or stroll for the whole family, followed by a post-run brunch food court and campus celebration.

The Challenge criteria:

  • Representatives from all members of your School community: students (at least one from each program), staff, faculty, Director (or Associate Director) and alumni,
  • Incorporation of a profession-related prop,
  • Visible expression of School and Dal spirit - this could take the form of t-shirts, Dal colours, costumes - the sky's the limit!
  • Contribution to our FHP Facebook campaign: encourage your School community to follow @DalHealth on Facebook, and then post which School they are supporting on our wall. Act quickly - the deadline for follows and wall posts is Friday, October 13 at noon!

How does your team win?

It’s simple:
1.    Sign up for the race (you’ll be prompted to note your School team during registration)
3.    Recruit others and follow us on Facebook @DalHealth - then post on our wall by noon on October 13 letting us know what School you support to help your team win. 
4.    Take part in the President’s Fun Run/Walk during Dal Homecoming.
Good luck!
