School spirit at Grapeview Public School benefits cancer patients!

November 21, 2014

Grade 8 students from Grapeview Public School made a visit to the St. Catharines hospital recently to deliver their contribution to cancer care. With the support of staff and parent council, students put a healthy dose of ‘fun’ in their fundraising in the form of a charity carnival that featured face-painting, games, silent auction, a bounce castle and balloon jousting.

Besides this event, Grapeview students take part in numerous community activities throughout the year including the Grape & Wine parade, Rankin Run, and supplying the ‘cheer’ for riders crossing the The Big Move Cancer Ride finish line. OneFoundation for Niagara Health System salutes Grapeview students, staff and parents for sharing their infectious spirit for the good of cancer patients and the community.
