St. Mary/St. Cecilia's Movember Proceeds presented to Canadian Cancer Society

News - April 4, 2012 Edition

MORRISBURG —  

The results of the St. Mary/St Cecilia Catholic School Movember Campaign that centred around four teachers, Chris Veltkamp, Jeff Vynckier, James MacIntyre, and Marvel Booyink were turned over to the Canadian Cancer Society last Thursday. The Movember Campaign included a number of school activities. “Four of us grew moustaches, and we had little events throughout the month of November that involved the kids,” explained Veltkamp. “The kids designed moustaches for us and participated in their own moustache day.” Donations were collected throughout November and thanks to the generosity of the school community $825.89 was raised. The Movember event involves the growing of moustaches during the month of November and is aimed at promoting awareness, understanding and funding of men’s cancers, in particular prostrate cancer. On average 11, Canadian men die of prostrate cancer every day. Pictured  for the cheque presentation, l-r, are Chris Veltkamp, Len “Skippy” Bisson (representative of the SD&G Branch of the Canadian Cancer Society), Jeff Vynckier and James MacIntyre. Marvel Booyink was not available for the photo.
