Relay for Life 2019

Chisholm Academy is continuously partaking in charitable events to help raise awareness and make change in our community.

Friday, June 7, was a perfect summation of all of the wonderful change we contribute to. On the beautiful, sunny day, 14 students and four teachers participated in the 18th Annual Burlington-Oakville Relay of Life. The event is an opportunity for us to remember, celebrate and support our loved ones who have been impacted by cancer. This year’s Relay was a particularly important one for the Chisholm family.

For a month leading up to Relay, we set a school target of raising $1,500 for the Canadian Cancer Society. It is an honour to announce that Chisholm has exceeded this goal by raising nearly $1750!

To celebrate this triumph with the Burlington-Oakville teams, we joined at Bronte Creek at 7 pm to walk in honour of those who have fought the battle. There was a live band performing classic hits, free massages and face-painting, delicious treats to enjoy and a drumming circle.

As the sun set, luminaries lit up the night during walks that were solemn and celebratory all at once.

Thank you to our families who supported Chisholm students yet another successful Relay for Life.

Mr. Tollesfrud, Ms. Bysice, Mr. Tanaka and Miss Shaheed
