The annual United Way iClimb event was held on Wednesday, February 22nd at the WFCU Centre in Windsor and the Belle River Nobles were there. Clad in their green and white spirit wear, the Nobles stood out among the many student and community members from across Windsor-Essex County The iClimb event is an exciting challenge of fun filled activities that promote active living. Participants also help raise funds and awareness to support Mental Health and Counselling Programs funded by the United Way in our local community.
Forty two Noble iClimbers climbed a combined 45,000 steps in the main bowl of the WFCU. During the event they also had the opportunity to participate in a boxing lesson, play goofy golf, run an inflatable obstacle course and break out from an escape room. The participants all showed tremendous spirit and enthusiasm throughout the day. “I am exceptionally proud of the Noble Nation and how they care about our community and helping the United Way”, said Mr. Gerald Hlady, Head of the BRDHS Phys-Ed department.
For the third year in a row, Tanya Candido was the top Noble fundraiser. Candido raised a total of $637 for the United Way... “I have never been more proud of my Noble family for iClimb than I was this year.” said Tanya. “We, as a school and as a family put forth our best effort, attitude and spirit towards this event. I love knowing that what I do in my community truly is helping others. I hope my school keeps up this tradition after I graduate.” Other BRDHS top earners include Dawson O’Neil, Samantha Theriault, Alanna Budden, and Jessica Berrill. Congratulations to all the Nobles who donated their time and fundraising efforts for this year’s iClimb event.
