Together we raised $802 with the Terry Fox Run yesterday.

Raven Hallway raised: $380.

Way to go ROMS!!

Our combined total for both the Terry Fox and the COPS 4 Cancer fund raising campaign is currently $1455.

Our goal is to raise $3000 to sink some of the staff into the dunk tank and raise  $5000 to shave Mr Azim's, Mr Sparanese's and Mr Stanchfield's head.  We can do it Royal Oak.  There are 3 days to go!!
