Kerrisdale Annex Dance-a-Thon Raises Money for Rick Hansen Foundation

In January of this year, Kerrisdale Annex Grade 3 student Mandalay Roberge decided to do an independent project. She wanted to do a dance-a-thon to fundraise for the Rick Hansen Foundation. After three and half months of hard work, she pulled together a fantastic event which saw the entire school (students and staff) dancing for 25 minutes to mark the 25 year anniversary of Hansen's Man-in-Motion journey. 

The entire event was a smashing success and was capped off by an impromptu visit by the "man in motion" himself. Hansen dropped by to accept a large cheque of $375 from Roberge and her friends and groove with the school as they danced the minutes away.
