On Sunday June 2nd, students and staff of General Gordon Elementary school participated in the RBC "Race for the Kids." In partnership with the BC Children's Hospital foundation, this event was created in support of the research of childhood cancers and mental health initiatives. General Gordon spent the last two months working together to fundraise for this event. Our student council helped spread the word, and we were able to donate all of our popcorn sales over the month of May to the cause as well. Together, General Gordon raised over $3,600. What an accomplishment!
Thanks to the incredible participants, sponsors, vendors and volunteers, the race wrote a cheque on Global BC for $1,059,079.86!
