Last Friday, Student Council sponsored a “Go for the Gold Event” to raise awareness for childhood cancer. In addition to a bake sale, students were asked to donate $2 and wear a gold or yellow shirt. The colors yellow and gold are a reference to the colors championed by childhood cancer research advocates. The students also tied gold ribbons and balloons to the school fence.
Kearney will donate all funds raised to the American Childhood Cancer Organization, in memory of Kaitlyn Bernhardt ‘20 (daughter of Jennifer Fallon Bernhardt ‘88) and Sally Kabel “Sweet Sally Sunshine” (daughter of Nicole Kabel ‘96).
