Michael Fitzgerald's Jerry Can Challenge
Benefiting kids at Kefa Academy in Rwanda
My name is Michael Fitzgerald and I am a member of Rachel Carson Middle School. For Eighth Grade at our school we have to make our own service project with an organization. I decided that I wanted to work with the Kefa project because I had previous connections with the organization. For my action project I am doing a jerry can challenge for our school that raises money for the Kefa Project. The jerry can challenge comes from how people transport water in Rwanda. On a daily basis people from all over in Rwanda collect water in jerry cans. Also students at the Kefa academy use jerry cans for training. So at school I am running a fundraiser where students walk around a set of cones 40 feet apart carrying large jugs for as long as they can. Students will also be competing against the homeroom classes. You will be able to pledge for Ms. Silva, Mr. Quinn, Mr. Gibson, Ms. Shrader, Ms. Hall, or Ms. Hereford’s homeroom classes. Each team will have about 30 students. One pledge will sponsor one homeroom class of 30 students. Donations are also accepted. Thank you!
