The Beyond Borders Campaign

We are excited to announce the launch of Strathcona High School's 2019 Initiative, the "Beyond Borders" Campaign! For the past eleven years, the students of Strathcona have come together in support of many different local or global causes.  Through fundraising and service efforts, we have been able to make a difference in many lives and communities and to bring together the students, staff, and greater community of Edmonton in a fun and meaningful way. To learn more about the Scona Initiative, please visit www.sconainitiative.ca.

On March 15th, the Strathcona community will be hosting our 24 hour Bikeathon in support of Doctors Without Borders, or Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). MSF is a humanitarian emergency medical organization that was founded in 1971. They provide urgently needed healthcare directly to people who have been made vulnerable by crisis, conflict, disaster or neglect. Their medical teams are on the ground working to save lives and alleviate suffering in more than 65 countries around the world. Projects can last only weeks or maintain a presence, in some form, for decades.

For additional information on Doctors Without Borders, check out their website.


Our donations from Scona will go to an unrestricted emergency fund that helps direct the money to wherever it is needed most urgently.
