MS LOONIE TREATS RESULTS
The last brownie has been sold, and my students have done the final accounting. I am thrilled to let you know that my Loonie Treat/cupcake fundraiser raised $1813.00 this year!! The money will go to the MS Society, as part of the MS Biking to the Viking Fundraising event, which takes place in August. My family and I have participated in this ride since 2008. This summer, we get to try out a new route around Gimli, and cycle 135 km over the weekend.
The mission of the MS Society is to be a leader in finding a cure for multiple sclerosis and enabling people affected by MS to enhance their quality of life. My cousin lives with MS, which is why this cause is near and dear to my heart.
Thank you so much for supporting my Loonie Treat sale!
