At Christ King Catholic School, we are currently having a fundraiser for 11-year-old Maison Ruby. Mason has a rare blood disorder called Hemophilia. Hemophilia is a disorder in which blood doesn’t clot like it should, so when Maison gets a small or large cut, it will not clot until he receives a needle injection. Students are busy collecting pledges for the Canadian HemophiliaSociety until Oct. 28. On this day, grades 4 to 9 will be travelling to the Stettler Bowling Alley to bowl for Maison for the afternoon. Mason’s mother, Tanya Ruby, has planned a fun afternoon that day for all students, filled with snacks and prizes.
