On, Sunday, October 1, the Lower and Middle School joined together to participate in the JDRF One Walk at Lovers Point.
Inspired by compelling stories shared by Catalina alumni and friends just weeks before at a panel discussion, the Cougars demonstrated tremendous support. Teachers, students, and parents made generous online donations on the "Cougars Care" team page, and others brought in donations to the classrooms and Lower and Middle School office. Best of all, families, teachers, and even dogs joined together to walk on a beautiful morning.
As a result of everyone's efforts, Santa Catalina raised $7,000 just on the team's JDRF page alone! We also had more than 235 walkers—a new team record! We are so grateful for the caring hearts of our Cougars and the support of all of our families. What a great way to begin our year of reaching out to others with courage!
