Brittany Goldsborough, Student Council President at Marymount Academy addressed the student body at the “Kick Off For Cancer” campaign held in the school’s gym recently. Throughout the month of April, Marymount students will be canvassing door-to-door to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Proceeds from the Residential Canvass will go towards cancer research and to provide services such as reliable information, emotional support, transportation, and support at treatment centres and lodges. Special guests Sonia Del Missier, Marisa Certossi, Melissa Durrell and Peter Williams joined with the Marymount students to help celebrate the residential kick-off campaign. Marymount students have set a target of $1,000 as their goal in this year’s campaign.
