Marymount Academy Helps Kick Off 2005 Residential Campaign

April 6, 2005 - Alyssa Jylha, a Grade 6 student from St. James Catholic School had a very special hair cut recently at Marymount Academy’s annual Kick Off For Cancer Campaign. Alyssa has been growing her hair for the past two years so that she could donate her locks to be made into a wig for a child with cancer. Her locks will be given to Angel Hair for Kids Organization,(a Canadian Cancer Society Organization). The community of Lively along with the staff and students at St. James Catholic School and the “INCO linemen” department showed their support for Alyssa by pledging $616.86 to the Canadian Cancer Society on Alyssa's behalf.

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, Peter Williams, Ron Dupuis, Lyn Lebeau, Valerie Zuliani and three of the Sudbury Wolves more well known hockey players had an opportunity to address the student body. Each hockey player shared a personal life story of an individual in their family who has been affected by cancer. They also stressed how important it is for young people in the community to volunteer their time with the Canadian Cancer Society. The Marymount students have set a school target of $1,000 as their goal in this year’s campaign.
