Students helping Hailey

Thornhill Primary School is keeping the fundraising for Hailey Pettit going with a week-long event that is coming to a cutting, sticky end.

Thornhill Primary School is keeping the fundraising for Hailey Pettit going with a week-long event that comes to a cutting and sticky end this week.

Hailey Pettit, a student at the school, was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Leukemia in January and has been taking rounds of chemotherapy at BC Children’s Hospital since then.

To help out with travel expenses and living expenses for her family to come visit her – her mom is staying down south with her –  friends and students, some of whom don’t even know her, have been raising money.

Thornhill Primary students starting collecting monetary donations last week and will count it all up this Thursday.

Grade 3 student Mikayla Beaudette, 8, will have 14 inches of her hair cut off to donate to Angel Hair for Kids.

The student who raises the most money gets to take the scissors or shaver to her head this Friday at 2 p.m. in the school gym.

And if at least $600 is raised, every student who brought a donation will get to help duct tape teacher Ryan Chapman to the gym wall.
