Leadership Students – Cambie Secondary School

By October 30, 2011October 31st, 2016Hall of Fame

After viewing the documentary film Darius Goes West, members of a leadership group at Cambie Secondary school in British Columbia wanted to do something to help find a cure for DMD.  A teen at the school has Duchenne so the cause is especially close to home.  Aiming for something more unusual than a lemonade stand or bake sale, the group held a Wake-A-Thon.  The students collected pledges from around the community and then stayed up all night!  This wacky approach proved quite successful…the group raised a total of $5,200 for Charley’s Fund and two other charities.  Thank you Cambie Secondary and please, get some rest!!
