Cavaliers Become Curefinders

Olivia Jones is shown with the work of art she created for CHS.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. During the week of February 8-12, Cuthbertson High School parents, students, and staff had the honor to be Curefinders as we raised money for CF research, care, and education. Our week-long fundraiser began at our “Meet the Teacher” PTSO meeting on February 8, 2010 by meeting Olivia Jones, a spunky and smart three-year-old who is battling CF on a daily basis. First periods were then challenged to raise money to help children and adults like Olivia. As Curefinders, Cuthbertson High School raised $1,193.99 for CF, with Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Cominotti’s classes raising the most money and earning a breakfast in their honor. At the breakfast to honor the two first period classes who raised the most money, each class was awarded a certificate, and the school was awarded a framed picture painted by three-year-old Olivia. This picture now hangs in the school’s front office as a reminder of the community service spirit we encourage and promote at Cuthbertson High School. Thanks to all who helped to support the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis foundation.
