Hairy challenge for male DVSS teachers at Terry Fox School Run

    In the battle of the sexes, there is one area that women have shown an enduring strength.
    That is hair removal.
    Most would not question  that facing the wax pot takes more fortitude than a dull disposable Bic any day. If DVSS students reach their goal at the annual Terry Fox School run, they may get to witness the effects of waxing on members of the male faculty.
    Teacher Ryan Hatch has issued a challenge to the student body. If they are able to raise $3,000 at the annual cancer fundraiser, the legs of some of the male staff will undergo the painful depilatory process. If they reach $5,000, Hatch will say goodbye to his bounty of chest hair via hot wax.
    “This should serve as some motivation,” laughs Hatch.
    Kidding aside, he understands the far reaching effect of cancer and how it touches virtually everyone’s lives.
    “My mother is a cancer survivor, so I really get behind this one,” said Hatch.
    The annual Terry Fox School Run goes Wednesday, September 28. DVSS has been an active participant for years. Students have all been given pledge sheets to collect support and it appears they will have a little entertainment if they reach the threshold.
    “I always look forward to the run, even if they (the students) outdo themselves. It might be a little painful, but it will be worth it,” said Hatch.
