Jump with Jeremy raised over $2,000

The last month of school was a busy one for Benalto School. Not only were they wrapping up the school year, but students and staff also held their fourth annual Jump with Jeremy.

The school collected donations, held a garage and bake sale and sold ice cream treats to raise money for the Stollery Children’s Hospital. They raised an amazing total of $2,055.64 which will go towards a program for children and teenagers who are in the hospital for treatments.

The program uses games and activities to help children have fun and feel comfortable and also makes it easier to talk about difficult things.

One item that the program will be able to purchase because of Benalto School’s donation is a laser star projector. It helps people feel calm and relaxed, and that can help them feel better about being in the hospital.

To celebrate their Jump with Jeremy success, Benalto School had a pizza lunch and an afternoon of water activities last Wednesday. Their kindness, generosity and hard work were recognized and excitement was had by all!
