    Glenlawn Collegiate Giving Back to the Community

    On April 19, the Grade 9 boys’ basketball team from Glenlawn Collegiate, in partnership with Dakota Community Centre, used money they raised to run a basketball camp for Glenwood School’s Grade 5 and 6 students. Dakota Community Centre’s Basketball Program was able to donate basketballs for the kids to use during the camp.

    The 9th grade boys came up with the idea to run the basketball camp themselves. After running a canteen back in February for a Glenlawn home tournament, they found themselves with extra proceeds from selling food, raffle tickets and gift baskets.  Instead of spending the money on themselves, they came up with the idea to give back to the community instead.  They decided to use the money to run a basketball skills camp for the younger Glenwood kids that would soon be coming to Glenlawn, and ignite their interest in playing the sport they love.  They also bought the food and drinks that were served at the camp.
