St. Alphonsus raises funds for Sick Kids Hospital in honour of JK Student

Nathan Nippard Event

On Thursday, December 17th, St. Alphonsus School participated in a very important Civvies collection to support one of our students, Nathan Nippard. Nathan was diagnosed with childhood leukemia and has been undergoing treatment at Sick Kids. 

To show our support for Nathan and his family, everyone at St. Alphonsus was asked to wear something orange as orange is the official leukemia awareness colour, and make a donation. As a community we raised six hundred dollars which was donated to SickKids Foundation. We were very excited to have a representative from SickKids Foundation visit our school, and as a community we presented the foundation with our donation. Little Nathan was also present, and it was a pleasure to announce to everyone that presently, Nathan is cancer free thanks to the great work of SickKids! 

We wish Nathan and his family all the best as they continue their journey to a complete recovery. Thank you St. Alphonsus for coming together in support of Nathan and SickKids; we look forward to having Nathan join us at school one day soon​
