The students of Century Jr. High are “Going Mad” this March! Go Mad is the name of the student service program for all students to Go Out and Make A Difference. Go Mad is also the reason Seventh Grade teacher Joe Galvin had his head shaved by student Devin Phillips recently.
Devin had just learned that he was in remission from his illness and announced he would be participating in the St. Baldrick’s fundraiser for Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn.
While each grade level chose a charitable organization to donate their fundraising collection, the faculty and staff at Century Jr. High also raised funds for Devin Philips’ cause. Over the course of a few weeks they raised over $1,300 to help Devin in his fundraising for Hope Children’s Hospital and Mr. Galvin volunteered to let Devin shave his head.
High Principal Brian Horn said, “Devin was hoping to raise $150 for St.
We are very proud of Devin’s courage and are happy to help him.”
St. Baldrick’s is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for childhood cancer research.
