Over 800 St Charles College staff, students and community members came out to enjoy the sunshine yesterday as the school hosted their annual Cards Crush Cancer event. The fundraising event aims to raise money for the Northern Cancer Foundation. All proceeds stay right here in Sudbury.
The event was created by the SCC student council in 2019 and has been a huge success ever since. Year after year, the students come in droves to enjoy live entertainment like dancing, singing, trivia, Zumba and a live DJ. SCC turns their school grounds into a carnival themed day with local food trucks on site, BBQ snacks, a huge stage, water balloons, bubble soccer, jumbo lawn games, intramurals, obstacle courses, teacher vs student games etc.
This year was no different, except it got even better. The event saw a new water gun zone with refill stations, a new inflatable riding bull, and even had cirque du soleil style performances on stage. It is safe to say there was a little something for everyone.
Guest speaker from the NCF, Kris Cacciotti came to share some enlightening words with the students before the day began, he was in awe at the number of participants outside enjoying the day for a great cause. Kris says “I am always so amazed at how SCC gets their student body involved and plans these epic fundraising events; between the student turnout, the music and sound setup, and the on-site activities, it’s all pretty remarkable. I am always so amazed at how SCC gets their student body involved and plans these epic fundraising events; I wish I had this in high school”
SCC is grateful for the generosity of their students and cannot wait to host again next year.
