Clarkson Secondary School staff and students raise a record-breaking $30,000 in their 40th annual Cancer Drive

Students and staff at Clarkson Secondary School came together for their 40th annual Cancer Drive, where they raised a total of $30,000 for Camp Oochigeas, a camp for children whose lives have been affected by childhood cancer.

Events held during the Cancer Drive include:

• The Chocolate Milk Chug
• Cancer Drive Talent Show
• Rent-a-Friend Auction and of course
• our wrap up assembly at the end of the week, where guys agree to get their legs waxed, students shave heads or beards and cut and donate ponytails and teachers take pies in the face.
• A student show featuring Clarkson alumna and magician, Kyle “Magic” Babineau

Over the past thirteen years, Clarkson has raised over $650 000 for cancer-related charities and is proud to be one of Camp Oochigeas’ top 30 fundraisers. This year’s grand total of $30,000 will help fund 120 days of camp. Thank you to all staff and students for your participation and generosity!
