De La Salle College raised $3,500 in Matthew’s Name!
On a Saturday afternoon in November, more than 85 students, teachers and parents from the De La Salle community walked through downtown Toronto uniting in support of their very own Grade 7 student Matthew Berger.
Matthew was diagnosed with lymphoma and had not returned to school after the summer break. Originally planned as a walk of support, the walk soon turned into a celebration when it was announced that Matthew was cancer-free.
As a community of teachers, students, and parents, De La Salle raised over $3,500 in Matthew’s name.
“A few small steps, a generous heart, and a huge amount of school spirit can go a very long way.”
– Michael Luchka, De La Salle College
