1st Cancer Society Relay For Life at Immaculate Conception raises $9231.48


May 13, 2016 - On May 6th, Immaculate Conception, staff, students and parents participated in their very 1st Relay for Life. Their fundraising goal was to match the $1293.00 donation made by a grade 2 student, Julia Hayden when she cut her hair, at their kick off, to help make wigs for Cancer patients. They were hoping to collect $2400.00.

This year’s theme was “Walking Together, Sharing Our Story”. The afternoon started off with an opening ceremony where two students Julia Hayden and Emily Lotter shared their Cancer story along with Mrs. Swiatek, EA.

The school then recognized the participation of Cancer survivors, who were family members of the students. They so courageously led the walk outdoors. After an hour walk, they met back in the gymnasium for a very touching luminaries ceremony that allowed the school community to pray for the survivors as well as their loved ones who lost their fight to Cancer.

The students could not contain their excitement when the grand total was unveiled at the closing ceremonies. Mrs. Cathy Burns, from the Canadian Cancer Society’s regional office, was presented with a cheque for $9231.48.

Following this presentation, the much anticipated “Pie in the face” event took place. The student who raised the most in each class got to pie a teacher and the student who raised the most in the whole school got to pie the principal.

What an amazing event! Fun was had by all! A great big THANK YOU goes out to the many volunteers, the survivors, the students, parents & staff at Immaculate Conception. Their efforts really did pay off!
