Kindersley Composite School Cancer Research Fundraiser

The Kindersley Composite School student leadership council has been raising money for cancer research for eight years during our annual Think Pink week, and this is by far the highest total yet! Our group of 25 grade 9-12 leadership students worked so hard from October 14-21 to raise money for their total of $10 342.00!  This fundraiser is entirely student driven. The large team splits off into grade alike teams and treat the fundraising as a competition throughout the week. This healthy competition drives the students to do their very best, although they know that there really are no losers when we raise money for such an amazing cause. Our grade 12 team came up with an idea when they were in grade 10 to "Flush Away Cancer." In grade 10 they found an old toilet from the garbage dump, cleaned it up, spray painted it pink and added some bling. This toilet has gone around our community during cancer week for three years, sitting on people's front lawns and spreading community spirit as well as awareness for cancer research. The girls have since added three more toilets, and this year the four toilets in their "Flush Away Cancer" campaign raised them over $4000 towards our cause. Some of the other fantastic fundraising efforts from our students were a prize wheel with prizes from local sponsors, busking on main street, a float sale, a bake sale, hat days in school, a cookie and hot chocolate sale as well as countless hours pounding the pavement and collecting donations door to door in Kindersley and Coleville. Our goal is to grow character and leadership skills in our students, and this initiative has taught them more than a textbook ever could. We are thankful to the C95 Radio Marathon for Cancer Research for allowing us a platform to raise money that will stay in our province. We hope that our dream to Flush Away Cancer once and for all one day becomes a reality!
