Upper Island Cove school gives back

Last Friday, the gymnasium at St. Peter’s School in Upper Island Cove overflowed with excitement as students held their first Shave for the Brave.

St. Peter's School in Upper Island Cove held its first ever Shave for the Brave event to aid Young Adult Cancer Canada.

This school’s initiative saw their three communities of Bishop’s Cove, Bryant’s Cove and Upper Island Cove unite and give back by raising money to help young people move through and beyond their cancer experience. Seventeen participants raised a grand total of $5,800 for Young Adult Cancer Canada. 

Participants included adults and students of all ages. There were some grandparents with their grandchildren, parents with their children, and individual students who took up the cause to support young adults with cancer.

Students were also treated to a special guest. Razor, the Shave for the Brave mascot, interacted and danced with the students while four local hairstylists used their skills and donated their time to shave or cut the participants’ hair.

St. Peter’s would like to send out a special thank you to all participants and the four hairstylists — Noelle Lynch, Terri Lynn Mercer, Kim Adams, and Rob Dove.
