31 Crestwood students, teachers and alumni ran down Yonge street in the Sporting Life 10k run, in support of Camp Oochigeas. It started off as a cool, rainy day; perfect for a morning jog. Just as we all were approaching the finish line, the sun came out to greet us and cheer us on for a job well done. Crestwood staff and students have been training and fundraising since March for this great run and terrific cause. Camp Oochigeas gives the opportunity for kids with cancer to experience the magic of camp, without any cost to the family, and it is able to do this through volunteers and the fundraising efforts of the community. Crestwood has raised $9,200 for Camp Oochigeas so far, making us the winner of this year’s Sporting Life 10k High School Fundraising Challenge for the second year in a row. Donations are still being accepted, and will be for the rest of the week. To donate click here.
Thank you to all the students for their hardwork and dedication. To the staff members involved for your support and for helping us out with training, organizing and chaperoning. To all the parents for helping us shuttle bags to the finish line, cauffeuring kids to training practices and getting them to the run at 7am on Mother’s Day. To administration for your continued support of this incredible cause, and a very special mention to my right hand man, Pat McCluskey. Without you, getting this off the ground and running as smoothly as it did would not have been possible.
