At St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary in Hamilton, ON, we are dedicated to the service of others. Our school's motto is Praestantia Scholastica, Praestantia Athletica, Praestantia Religiosa, which entails excellence in academics, athletics and serving "the least of our brothers and sisters". Regarding the latter, we organize many large, successful outreach programs and community service initiatives, such as Christmas Miracle, Best Buddies, and the largest "WE Scare Hunger" program in the world, collecting over 80,000lbs of non-perishable food items every Halloween for 5 years running!
This initiative - WE Walk for Water - is a simple yet impactful event. Over 840 million people worldwide live without access to clean drinking water. Through WE Charity and their international partners, every $25 donated to this cause gives clean water to one person for life! Continuing with Madison Babineau's legacy of "Making a Difference", we will request that WE Charity allocate the funds raised to a community near Maddie's adopted village of Enelerai in Kenya.
In addition to our WE Walk for Water event on May 13, we are hoping this fundraising page for friends, staff and alumni of STM will raise $250, making a difference in the lives of 10 more of our brothers and sisters in Kenya!
Thank you so much for your support! May we be part of the "wave" of change!
