Grad service projects launched by Red Deer Catholic students raised $497,730 for charities across Central Alberta over the last decade.
This year, graduating Notre Dame High School students are hoping to raise $40,000 for Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre.
“Grad service projects are our tradition. (They) allow students to experience school pride and giving back to their community,” said the school’s project coordinator Shannon Nivens.
From March 12 to 17, teams of six Notre Dame and St. Francis of Assisi Middle School students and their team teacher will work together to complete challenges during the lunch hour to earn points.
On Friday, March 16, student teams will start a 21-hour scavenger hunt and amazing race throughout Red Deer. Students will wind up at the high school at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 17.
Teams earning the most points and money will be awarded prizes. All proceeds will go to Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre. The public is welcome to cheer on the teams.
