On Friday, April 7, the Hansen Elementary School teachers, spearheaded by physical education teacher Andrea Moore, held a town-wide fundraising event for Madi Bergstrom and her family. A second grader at the Hansen, Madi has been undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This is the third time she is battling this cancer.

Over 260 students from the Hansen, John F. Kennedy, Luce, and St. John’s elementary schools attended the event. Hansen staff members, the Canton High School Character Crew, and the CHS football team assisted the students in playing a variety of sports and having pictures taken at a photo booth station. The Canton Pack 77 Cub Scouts ran a station where students were able to create craft projects to take home.

Dinner and drinks were donated by Apollo Pizza, Canton Center Pizza, D & E Pizza, Slices Pizza, Stop & Shop in Stoughton, and Wegmans of Westwood. Parents were encouraged to go over to the Turnpike Cafe during the event because the restaurant donated a portion of its revenues generated that evening to Madi and her family.

The Hansen teachers would like to thank all of these businesses; the Luce, JFK, Hansen, and St. John’s families and their alums; the Canton community; the Canton Public Schools; the CHS Character Crew and football team; Canton Pack 77 Cub Scouts; and Jackie Singleton, Mary Cawley, Dave Bohane, Danny Erickson, Derek Folan, Ryan Gordy, and all other volunteers they forgot to mention. This evening would not have been a success without everyone’s support.
