Sept. 26, students, parents and staff at the North Cariboo Christian School worked together to collect a whopping $872.80 towards the Terry Fox Fund for cancer research. They easily surpassed last year’s record amount of $288. The NCCS school community rallied around the idea of making a difference in the lives of those afflicted by cancer and were determined to collect as much money as possible. Principal Andrew Martin, challenged students and agreed to have his head shaved if they collected more than last year’s total. There was a real buzz of excitement in the school gym on Friday morning when Martin “lost his hair.” He felt that it was a small price to pay for such a worthy cause.
