Walk with Grace for charity

| 17/04/2009

(CNS): The Grace Christian Academy PTA raised over $6000 for capital projects at the school and more than $500 for Cayman HospiceCare, the designated charity for the second consecutive year for ‘Walk with Grace’ Family Walk on Seven Mile Beach. More than 150 students, family and friends participated in the third annual beach walk in March, which ended with a picnic catered by Subway. Other organizations that the school has donated to include: Kiwanis Give a Kid a Breakfast program, Heifer International, the Cancer Society and the National Trust Blue Iguana Recovery Program.

“We incorporate donating to local charities as part of our school fundraising, with the knowledge that giving to charity at an early age proves to be an excellent template for the children as they get older,” said Jennifer Grant-McCarthy, president of the Grace Christian Academy PTA Board. “Each time these donations are made, we make sure the students learn about the charity they are supporting, and the value of their donations.”
