We had a beautiful sunny day when all 700 plus students and staff greeted the Pedal for Hope team outside! Thank you for your energy and enthusiasm. They loved the signs and cheering!
Together at school we raised $676.60 from our ice cream and ice lolly sales! Way to go St. Elizabeth!
Pedal for Hope – the excitement returns as we prepare to welcome back in person and cheer on the Pedal for Hope Team as they ride by St. Elizabeth on : Tuesday May 17th at 1:30.
St. Elizabeth has done an outstanding job supporting this great team every year since the Spring of 2015!
Since 2005 officers from Durham Regional Police, Peterborough Police, the RCMP, OPP, and Metrolinx have visited schools on their bicycles to raise awareness of pediatric cancer. This year funds raised will support the Pediatric Family Counseling Service that provides support to families coping with a cancer diagnosis. This tour will also raise funds to support pediatric cancer research by Dr. Nielsen.
As COVID is still a reality in our communities, the officers will only be doing a school drive by and will not enter the school to take part in an assembly.
For those that are new to our school community, you can find further information and pictures at www.pedalforhope.ca.
