Students support Movember campaign in Kitimat

Mount Elizabeth Secondary students support the Movember campaign.

Cancer has touched most of our lives, and some of us reflect while others champion.

John Sorenson, a science teacher at Mount Elizabeth Secondary School decided that Movember was an opportunity to educate and involve his student’s in the fight against cancer.

On November 1 John put down his razor and took up a pledge. He would not shave his mustache for the month of November and he would encourage his students to fundraise for prostrate cancer.

At the end of the month John would reward his student’s hard work with an ice cream cake. His student’s showed their support for their teacher by raising $1,728 dollars!

John, a humble man, said that all accolades belong to his students.

“It started with an idea, and ended with $1,728 dollars being raised,” Thank you Mr. Sorenson for encouraging your students to get involved. Often you hear people say “what’s wrong with kids today?” Well here is an example of “what’s right with kids today.”
