St. Raphael Students Help Teacher Conquer Cancer

When St. Raphael’s Carlos dos Santos takes part in this summer’s Ride to Conquer Cancer, he will leave his Carbon Fibre at home and be riding on the man power of his students, using a bicycle built for him at St. Raphael, by St. Raphael’s own. Recently, Santos was officially be presented with his bicycle in a special ceremony at the school.

“When we started the bicycle project I never thought that one of our teachers would volunteer to participate in the Ride to Conquer Cancer and that the bike would be built by our students in our new bike shop,” said Harold Penn, principal of St. Raphael Centre. “Students with special needs have worked very hard to get the bike ready and the entire school has gotten behind the project. I am very proud of all the students, volunteers and the teachers who have helped to make this project such a success.”

To help Carlos dos Santos reach his goal, please visit www.conquercancer.ca. Santos’ rider number is: 351530-1. St. Raphael Centre is also collecting cheques on behalf of Santos. Donations made out to “St. Raphael Centre” can be mailed to: St. Raphael Centre, 8735 Henri-Julien Street, Montreal, QC, H2M 1M5. A tax receipt will be sent to all donors.
