The Civics 11 class at Summerland Secondary School is raising money for a Summerland resident needing help with medical bills.
The class is sponsoring the Get Active Marathon Nov. 28 in the school gym. For seven hours participants will stay active with dodgeball, yoga, soccer and tag to earn pledges.
The event is to raise money for a SSS graduate, Kaitlyn Duck, who has been affected by a blood infection that led to brain surgery not covered by medical insurance. Donations can be brought to the school office and cheques can be made out to SSS. Last year the civics class put on a Get Active Marathon that raised $1,400 for the SPCA.
