On Friday, September 25, Club Periwinkle hosted a school-wide Mum Contest during lunch to raise money for kids with cancer. Over $150 was raised and all the donations were sent through the Periwinkle Foundation to be donated to kids with cancer.

 

Club Periwinkle operates under a national program called Periwinkle Foundation, which helps raise money for cancer treatments and make kids with cancer feel like a normal kid. The foundation hosts several events in the summer, including Camp Periwinkle in late July where kids perform activities like rock-climbing and swimming, even though many of them are in a wheelchair. Club Periwinkle helps these events happen through fundraising and donations.

 

“The Club held a Mum & Garter contest last week in support of the Periwinkle Foundation,” said Mrs. Fritsch. “We raised $165 for this amazing foundation.  September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  Over 600 kids are diagnosed with cancer at Texas Children’s Hospital each year.  The Periwinkle Foundation provides programs for these special kids.  Please join us in supporting this incredible organization.”
