St. Clair Students Donate To CFApril 1, 2014 5:00am
A seven-year-old Chatham boy is getting a big boost from 2nd year St. Clair College nursing students.
Memphis Peatson suffers from cystic fibrosis and the nursing class recently handed over $400 for his fundraising campaign.
Student Amy Desjardins spearheaded the effort. “I found out about CF and how awful a disease it is and how there really is no cure for it,” says Desjardins. “So I joined the CF Canada committee and Chantelle Forman told me all about Memphis and his fundraising and I got inspired and told my fellow nursing students at St. Clair College.”
The cash will be donated at the Great Strides Walk at Mud Creek Park this May.
