Honoring Callum by building a classroom in Kenya.
Callum Russell MacLean grew up on Prince Edward Island. He was a “normal kid” until he was diagnosed with cancer in September of 2011 at the age of 14. Through his cancer treatment, he demonstrated great courage.
Callum passed away on April 9, 2013.
Now Callum’s family and friends want to build on his legacy of kindness.
Callum always worried more about the well-being of others than himself. And growing up, he was connected to kids in Kenya through a fund-raising project at his Sunday School. That effort was to raise money for mosquito nets, including ones handed out to students at Kamuketha School.
Now Callums friends and family want to honor Callum by building a classroom at the Kamuketha Primary School in Kenya
Over the next year, the Callum’s Classroom team will be putting on or supporting a number of fund-raising events…including a Sunflower Sale at Wood’s Farms in Stratford in August….and the annual Fitness Frenzy, led by Kim MacDonald of Innergyze. There are other fund-raisers in the works and we will post more information as they happen.
Farmers Helping Farmers has also set up a “Donate” button specifically for the Callum’s Classroom project. Where it says Your Donation Will Support, you can select Callum’s Classroom. Donations over $10 are eligible for a tax receipt.
