Representatives from the Marymount MC3 Catholic Charities Council and the Heart and Stroke Foundation were in attendance to help raise awareness for the kick off.

The actual blitz took place on February 20, 2008 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with students canvassing the areas encompassing the Marymount community. The school also raised money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation by participating in a “Red & White Day” on Valentine’s Day. Students paid $2 to dress in red, white and pink and will be directing the funds raised in this event to the Heart and Stroke Foundation as well bringing the total donation to close to $1,000.

Congratulations Marymount Academy.
