Bishop Alexander Carter Launches 2010 Heart and Stroke Campaign

Michelle Toner, spokesperson for the Heart and Stroke Foundation spoke to the students of Bishop Alexander Carter about the importance of getting involved and raising as much money as they could for such a worthy cause.

February 5, 2010 - Students at Bishop Alexander Carter gathered on February 5, 2010 for an assembly to launch the school's Heart and Stroke campaign. The school had several guests speak to the importance of fundraising and awareness of Heart and Stroke issues. Michelle Toner, spokesperson for the foundation talked of the personal family members that have had heart disease or strokes and the impact it has had on her. "Great things can happen if you put your mind to it." said Toner. "Go get 'em Gators and do the best you can to raise as much money as you can for Heart and Stroke!" Deputy Mayor Ron Dupuis also told the students of the importance of this campaign to the city of Sudbury. As a survivor of a massive heart attack back in 2006, Dupuis knows that the community of Sudbury has top-notch doctors,in fact, he believes "the best cardiologists in the world." By raising funds, he explained how this money was put right back into the community with dollars going to research, medical technology and support. He thanked all of the students for their past donations and told them that they were heroes for so generously giving their time and funds to support such a worthy cause. The students will have several ways to raise money for this year's campaign. First, the students have been asked to go out and canvas their communities for donations. As well, the students have the opportunity to participate in a co-ed ball hockey tournament on February 18, 2010 as either a player or a spectator by buying into the game or as buy out of class to cheer on the teams. The students will also have a dress down day they can buy into on February 24, 2010. The students hope to beat their donations from last year which were close to $3000.
