SBA Supports B-Strong

On Friday April 24 during periods 1 &2,  the entire school walked 5km to support the B-Strong Foundation.  B-Strong was formed by Alumni Lindsay Bolger when she was fighting brain cancer.  Unfortunately, Lindsay lost her battle with cancer.  Her parents, John and Joanne Bolger continue to raise funds in support of brain tumor research.

Our Athletic Council organized our 2nd annual walk with the help of Mr Turner, Mrs Fruscura, and Mr Mihaljevic.  The day started with an assembly during which Mr Bolger spoke about his daughter and the B-Strong Foundation.  Then the entire school when for a walk.  It was actually a very cold day, but this didn’t stop us from our mission to raise funds for B-Strong.

CTV Toronto and Tom Brown mentioned SBA on the news on Thursday April 23 and Friday April 24, pleased with our efforts to support B-Strong.lindsaybolgerquote

Last year we raised $7004 for the cause.  This year we were trilled to break that record with a total of $7500 raised. Congratulations to the entire school for a job well done!

On Sunday April 26, during the B-Strong Walk held at the Markham Museum, our grade 11 band played under the direction of Ms Barcena. At one point, Tom Brown was a guest conductor!  Our band sounded great and once again, SBA Pride was on display for all to see.  IMG_1473
