Another Successful Walk for Joy:

The morning of Sunday, September 29 was a little windy and rainy but still hundreds of Catholic high school students from all the metro-region Catholic high schools woke up early to walk for miles in order to bring awareness to and raise funds for Children’s Cancer Association (CCA). 

Valley Catholic students and staff met at St. Mary’s Academy and walked the four plus miles with students and staff from Jesuit and SMA. We met up with students and staff from Central, De La Salle, and La Salle at Sellwood Riverfront Park and celebrated Mass together. 

This continues to be a terrific event and I am thankful for all of your support. I’m already looking forward to the end of May so we can celebrate another CCA Carnival for Joy.
