Normandeau Student Supporting Mom Through MS Fundraiser!

By Sheldon Spackman

It’s the kind of story that warms your heart. A Grade 6 student from Red Deer’s Normandeau Elementary School has undertaken a fundraising initiative this week to help those living with MS in Central Alberta.

Last week, Taylor Teuling gave a presentation about MS to his fellow classmates after spending roughly two and a half months studying the subject. Up until recently, Taylor’s mother Jodi McCutcheon was a volunteer at Normandeau School but has been absent due to MS symptoms. Taylor felt it was important to share why his mother was no longer at the school.

After his presentation, there was an opportunity to ask questions. One classmate asked if they could hold a fundraiser. Taylor thought it was a great idea and has now taken matters into his own hands, while enjoying tremendous support from his peers.

Starting Monday, June 12th, Normandeau Elementary School will be hosting a Toonie Drive for the week, while on Wednesday, June 14th, his class will also host a Bake Sale during the noon hour. Taylor hopes to raise $800 for the MS Society of Canada – Central Alberta Chapter.

MS Society Development Coordinator Kim Mortimer says all the money raised will stay in Central Alberta and be used to help fund research and the local programs and services they provide.
