Ionia Community Awareness Week

2010 was the first year that we decided to start Ionia Community Awareness week. It was later decided to take the week off because we fundraise all year. In 2016, Ionia (as a community) was able to fundraise $30,000;  more than 2015’s goal. Ionia’s Community Awareness started September 9th and ended September 15th for the 2017 school year. The goal of community awareness is to fundraise and support those who are survivors of cancer, or are fighting at the moment, and those have been taken from us to soon. The money was raised through various fundraising events from places around town such as Moo-Ville, Big Boy, and Pizza Hut.  There will be many more events throughout the year. The money raised will go towards gas, food, insurance premiums, rent payments and other payments that those fighting cancer in the community need help paying for.

Juniors Anakah and Biana Williams match in this years purple shirt.

Within our school, students bought purple t-shirts with the 2017 Sit.Stay.Heal. logo. All of the money raised from the t-shirt schools through corporate sponsors stays in the community, this is why it’s called Community Awareness.

The sporting events (purple game’s) that took place during the week consisted of boys varsity soccer, boys tennis, girls swim, girls golf, girls volleyball, the cross country run, and the varsity football game.
