***For my senior capstone project, I am hosting a 5K race at Cannon School on April 4th to raise money for an organization that I have been working with over the past two years and is very close to my heart: Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This organization raises money to fund research grants for the top seven pediatric cancer centers in the country in order to create less toxic treatments for pediatric cancer. Most of the cancer treatments currently available for children have very harmful side effects that cause long term damage, so this organization is working to help develop treatments that are more effective and less harmful. I have been running on the Varsity Cross Country and Track teams here at Cannon for the past four years, and I wanted to combine this passion that I have for running with a way to support this amazing organization. It would mean the world to me to have your support, whether you would like to participate or donate. The link to sign up or donate is https://my.beagoodcookie.org/TakeABite5k.

For my capstone, I am trying to recruit volunteers to help with Special Olympics, this coming spring. Special Olympics has always been an important part of my life; I started to help volunteer when I was in 5th grade with family friends and I have continued to go each year after that. It’s a special experience that I would love to share with our community, so I am looking for 20 volunteers to go with me! We will be going on April 9, which is a half-day. Since we will be missing actual school, we still have expectations for everyone interested in going.
You must be a Junior/Senior
You must have transportation
You must stay with your buddy until the games are over (around 1 pm), whether that be in the Olympic village, eating lunch (volunteers receive a free lunch), or walking around. If your buddy chooses to leave, we will find you another way to help.
Special Olympics has set a strict number of people we may bring, so please don’t sign up if you are worried that you may need to cancel or go out of town. *You must be committed to going!
Remember, this day is special for them, not you!
If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill out this form and we will get back to you with a parent permission slip. *You have until March 6 to answer the form.* Please be concise with your answers: https://forms.gle/rmqmq1hb8GgdHgMD9
