The Break the Cycle Campaign

We are excited to annouce the launch of Strathcona High School's 2018 Initiative, the "Break the Cycle" Campaign! For the past ten 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

On March 16-17, the Strathcona community will be hosting our 24hr Bikeathon in support of Earth Group partnered with the World Food Programme (WFP). Earth Group is a grassroots organization created by two Edmontonians which works through a unique partnership with the WFP to feed and educate children living in some of the poorest places on Earth. Our fundraised dollars will be donated directly to the WFP to help fund 1 million school meals for children globally. In addition, our campaign will be providing 100 000 meals to people in Edmonton who are in desperate need via the Edmonton Food Bank.

For additional information on how Earth Group, the WFP, the Edmonton Food Bank, and the Strathcona Initiative relate to one another, check out these infographics.

To summarize, Our goal is to raise funds for 1.1 million meals worldwide and help children gain access to free education, water and food to help break the cycle of poverty!
