Riffel High School students in Regina are helping out a charity again this year for their 21st annual Wellness Day/Charity Classic.
This year, the Autism Resource Centre in Regina is getting their support.
Linda Parent is a teacher at Riffel High School. She says students and staff look to see where they can help out the most with this annual event.
“Some of the charities in the past were the Breast Cancer Action Saskatchewan,” said Parent. “The MS Society of Saskatchewan, the Special Olympics, and last year we did Newcomers to Regina. We look at where there is need in the community.”
The day kicked off with a school assembly, a cheque presentation and the annual “Charity Walk” around their community on Rochdale Boulevard.
Parent says the Wellness Day is something which makes the students and staff at Riffel High School very proud.
“They love this day,” said Parent. “They look forward to this day every year. They all pay money for this charity and get a real sense of pride for what they contribute.”
