Calgary junior high school "sticks it to cancer"


It’s something that would usually land these kids a big fat suspension – instead they are looking for a big fat cheque for charity.

Students at a Calgary school are getting permission to duct tape two of their science teachers to a gym wall Monday in order to “Stick it to Cancer.”

St. Helena Junior High has been fundraising for two months to honour Grade 9 Student Alec Remanda, a hockey player who’s been battling the disease for two years.

The festivities will begin with a pep rally and a floor hockey game at 12:30 p.m. against the Calgary Canucks junior team.

The school hopes to collect $4,000 for Kids Cancer Care.
