 Sudbury Catholic Students to Take Part in Walk for a Second Chance- April 28

April 23, 2012 - Student from all four Sudbury Catholic Secondary Schools will be taking part in the Irish Heritage Club of Sudbury’s Walk for a Second Chance on April 28th, 2012.  This walk is organized to support organ donation awareness and the Gift of Life which is an initiative that is fully supported by the Sudbury Catholic District School Board and its students.  On December 13, 2010, the Board launched its own challenge to the Greater City of Sudbury to be the first city in the province of Ontario to have 50% or more of its residents be registered organ and tissue donors, and have continued to spread the word to schools and the community about the importance of organ donation. Catherine McCullough, SCDSB Director of Education is very proud of Sudbury for embracing this initiative. “I am very proud of our Board for partnering with the Trillium Gift of Life Network for this very important initiative, and I encourage the entire community to join us in this challenge - to not only have Sudbury reach or even surpass the 50% registration for city-wide donation in Ontario, but more importantly, to recognize that there is no greater gift than the gift of life.”

David Dibrina, Sudbury Catholic Student Trustee, has been working with the Irish Heritage Club of Sudbury to continue to keep organ donation awareness a priority with students.  “Organ donation is so important in saving the lives of others,” Dibrina stated.  “It truly is one of the most selfless acts that we can do that can positively impact so many people.  Students need to make sure they are registered (beadonor.ca) and talk to their families so that they know what their wishes are.”

The walk will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. at the Bell Park Amphitheatre, Sudbury.

This is a walk for organ donation awareness and there are no monetary pledges.

For more information, please call (705)566-1328, or contact David Dibrina at St. Charles College at (705)566-9605.
