Megan's Hug Ambassadors
Our DEL Meagan’s Hug ambassadors continue to engage in their community work with their most recent leadership involvement with the iLITE -Intermediate Leadership Training Event to support Catholic Student Leadership. On January 27th, 2022 Alexandra Gilbert and Tamara Nabulsi represented our school remarkably as the iLITE leaders and presenters, offering testimonials of our school’s collaborative work with the Meagan’s Hug family. Their participation involved encouraging students to spread the message and mission of the Meagan’s Hug organization among schools in the city. This organization which raises funds for pediatric brain tumour research has been a community dear to the DEL family and we continue to work with the many volunteers who bring the message of hope, connectedness, and resilience. Our partnership is one that continues to spread awareness throughout the year as we continue to help raise funds for this groundbreaking work.
Always in gratitude,
Ms. Di Prospero
Working with the Megan's Hug volunteers to present what Megan's hug is all about and how other students all through the TCDSB can bring the initiative to their school was such an inspiring and eye-opening experience. We recognize and are grateful that Del had already been participating in Megan's Hug for years before Tamara or I even came to Del, and we wanted to send the message that it just takes one person with initiative to bring something so beautiful and powerful to their school community. Tamara and I are grateful to be ambassadors for Megan's Hug and we look forward to continuing to live our lives like Megan did, with curiosity, kindness and above all hope.
Working with Meagan's Hug to present at the conference was such a rewarding experience, we got to meet some amazing like minded people who share the goal of spreading awareness and spotlighting an amazing foundation. We got some wonderful questions from students all over Toronto, and we hope we were able to inspire some students like ourselves to bring Meagan’s Hug into their own school community. I really recommend getting involved with this in future years and look forward to seeing you all at DELs Hug in June!
