Red Deer high school students looking to raise $40k for Kerry Wood Nature Centre

The graduating students at Red Deer’s Notre Dame High School are looking to raise $40,000.

Each year, the graduating class chooses a charity to raise funds for through their grad service project.

This year, Kerry Wood Nature Centre was chosen as the recipient.

“Students were excited to choose a charity that can impact everyone in our community. They love the idea of families getting outside to play, learn and spend time together while reconnecting with nature,” said principal Rose McQuay.

Each day between March 9 and 14, teams consisting of a teacher and six students will work together to compete in challenges and earn points.

Teams will compete in a 23-hour scavenger hunt throughout Red Deer. The challenge is to collect all 2020 items on the list. Prizes will be awarded to the teams that earn the most points and for those that raise the most money.
