Students from Academy Canada Career College took up a special cause this winter. They accepted the Rick Mercer challenge to raise funds for the Spread The Net Foundation – a grassroots campaign designed to motivate, educate and inspire Canadians to help end preventable malaria deaths by raising funds and awareness to support the purchase and distribution of bed nets to children and families in Africa.
The 400 students and staff from the Corner Brook campus took part in the STN Education Challenge and raised $15,256.48 for the cause!
The effort was so impressive that it was deemed worthy of a mention on the Rick Mercer Report (click here).
“It was very exciting to see everyone at the campus so involved in the cause. The level of campus spirit was incredible and we’re thrilled that we could help more than 1,500 African families avoid the terrible effects of Malaria”.
