Annual Dance for Alex raises over $6,500

Montreal - Monday, December 9, 2019

Students and staff at Royal Vale School in N.D.G.  once again honoured the late Alex Porter-Rozmovits with their annual Dance for Alex on Friday, December 6.

Alex was a bright, loving and thriving six-year-old kindergarten student who died suddenly on June 22, 2009 of a rare bacterial infection. The school has held a morning dance in his honour every December since 2010.

Joining the students for this year’s dance was cross-country skier Alexis Turgeon. He is a nine-time member of the Canadian National Ski Team.

To mark the dance’s 10th year, Alex’s parents, Roberta Porter and Peter Rozmovits, with the assistance of the general and school  communities,   raised more than $6,500 for Royal Vale’s new fitness centre. Proceeds will be used to purchase training equipment, which will enhance student life for years to come. Physical Education and Health teacher Norman Katz and Principal Mauro Zampini welcomed hundreds of students into the gym wearing t-shirts with Alex’s profile emblazoned on the front
