OPS students support ‘Cops for Cancer’

The Orono Public School community raised over $1500 for Cops for Cancer which started 30 years ago after a young boy named Lyle from Alberta was bullied at school after losing his hair due to cancer treatments. A police officer got wind of this and invited Lyle to the station. This police officer was bald and he wanted Lyle to feel it was cool to be bald.

(Front row): Nolan, Bryleigh and Dylan showed their support to kids fighting cancer.
