Clarkson Secondary School recently held their Cancer Drive wrap-up assembly. Over 800 students and staff came together and broke fundraising records by raising over $43,000 for Camp Oochigeas.
Camp Oochigeas provides children who are affected by childhood cancer with unique opportunities to grow through challenging, fun, enriching and magical experiences – an opportunity for kids to be kids.
The funds will help provide camp days for children affected by cancer. This incredible accomplishment builds on the Cancer Drive tradition and legacy at Clarkson. The school has raised close to $1 million for cancer charities since 1973.
This initiative was inspired when members of the school community were diagnosed with cancer in the same year. In a show of solidarity, the school came together to raise money for cancer charities, a tradition which has continued since.
Thank you to our students, staff, families and community for their continuous support.
