Big Fish Challenge
The IWK Foundation’s Big Fish Program recognizes the top fundraising school from each region.
If your school is named Big Fish for your region (Mainland Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island) your school will be awarded:
- A $1,000 gift card donated by Walmart
- An opportunity to make a live cheque presentation during Telethon weekend
- A flag that can be proudly displayed in your school
Do you have what it takes to become a Big Fish?
Big Fish schools, based on actual dollars raised, will be notified by May 30, 2013.
Register today. Submissions must be received on or before May 25, 2013. For more information please contact:
