Beach Party Dance!  

On Monday, June 25th we will be having a dance in support of one of our students.  Mason Donkin is a Senior Kindergarten who has been diagnosed with Chiari Malformation.  Students can come dressed in tropical clothes. No bathing suits.  

“Chiari malformations are structural defects in the base of the skull and cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance.  Normally the cerebellum and parts of the brain stem sit above an opening in the skull (the foramen magnum) that allows the spinal cord to pass through it.  When part of the cerebellum extends below the foramen magnum and into the upper spinal canal, it is called a Chiari malformation (CM).” (from National Institute of Neurological Disorders)

A charity walk will be held on Saturday, July 14th to raise money and awareness.  Opening ceremonies will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the Bradford Leisure Centre (471 West Park Ave.).  We at MTB would like to support Mason’s walk and Chiari research.  Money raised from our Dance Party will be donated to Mason’s Walk for Chiari.  

We are asking for a donation to support Mason’s walk.  $2 per child is our goal, however any and all donations are welcome.                                                                  

Thank you!

Let’s support Mason!
