Dear Cannon Community
As I reflect on my life thus far, this Cannon School Community and my time on the track team have been the most influential aspects of my life. What better way to end my time as a lifer at Cannon then participating in a community run with the people that have been beside me from the start.
Exactly one year ago my grandmother passed away after a courageous battle with Scleroderma, and one of the things she enjoyed the most was watching me run. Through this run I hope to raise awareness for Scleroderma, a terrible autoimmune condition, and raise money to hopefully find a cure for the disease that my Nana lived with for almost 25 years.
Come out to our brand new track on April 3rd at 4:00pm and run a mile as fast as you can!! Whether you want to try for a new lifetime best or just experience what it is like to race a mile it is sure to be a great time!!
All donations will go to the scleroderma foundation, suggested donation $10.00, and you will walk away with hopefully a new personal best in the mile!! The winner will also receive a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses, donated by our event sponsor, University Eye Associates!
Please consider coming out and “Running Hard for a Scleroderma Cure!”
If you can attend please let me know as I would like to give our timer, aka Coach Campbell a head count the week before the event.
Calling all Cougars,
Student Council is doing a book drive for a school called Saint Anthony in Malaysia that former cougar Tim Gruber (Class of 2012) works for!!
How you can make a difference…
Our goal is to get each person in the upper school to donate 1 book. Just 1 book can change a child’s life. The drive starts this Wednesday March 6th and will conclude the following Friday March 15.
