A fabulous cause ...
Cashmere High School Library would like to give its full support to Harry Booth and his Give A Little 'Run for cure' to raise funds for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer NZ.
"Hi, I'm Harry, a year 10 student from Cashmere High. In 2011 my mother was diagnosed with Leukemia, and she is still currently undergoing treatment in Australia. I wanted to organize the 'Run for Cure' as a practical way of raising money and awareness for Leukemia as a way of giving back and saying thank you for all the support my mum has received. We will be running the Christchurch half marathon to raise money and awareness for blood cancer research in New Zealand."
