Clear Vista students raise money for health foundation

Students read over 4,000 pages this year for a challenge
Students at Clear Vista School made a donation to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation.

Grade 5 students at Wetaskiwin's Clear Vista School achieved a big goal in June. 

As a class, the students completed a reading challenge this year, collectively reading over 4,000 pages and raising $110. 

The students donated their proceeds to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation's current capital campaign, Give to Life – Emergency Care.

The foundation has pledged to raise and donate $2.1 million to support the purchase of new, state-of-the-art equipment to support the revitalization of Emergency Care at the Wetaskiwin Hospital and Care Centre.

The $2.1 million Campaign includes $1.7 million for Emergency Department equipment, as well as $400,000 of equipment that will support Emergency Care throughout the hospital.

The foundation thanked the students for their fundraising efforts. 

"Most often the donations that make a difference aren’t the extravagant one-time contributions, it’s the consistent support from individuals, groups, and even classes that work together and build over time," said the health foundation in a release.
