Inspired by We Day, a group of Capilano University students, Daniel Dubois, Sian Hebden, Kimia Tajbakhsh, Nicole Delgiglio, Gordon Cheng and Alicia Catalano, and their faculty advisor, Carolyn Stern, are spearheading a campaign, called Cap U We Do.
According to a written statement, the group, calling themselves's Ronald's Helping Heroes, started the campaign to raise
$27,000 in support of Ronald McDonald House, representative of the cost associated with 365 nights at the facility, which provides free accommodation for out-of-town families with children receiving medical treatment in Vancouver. To support their efforts, they hosted a Jammy Jam pajama party Tuesday.
Capilano University is the educational partner for We Day Vancouver, being held Friday at Rogers Arena.
One of the students involved in the campaign, Daniel Dubois, a business student, will speak at the event. Other speakers include KofiAnnan, Roméo Dallaire and Martin Luther King III.
Other events being held at Cap this week related to We Day include a blood drive, a performance by the Kenyan Boys Choir and the group plans to live-stream We Day Vancouver Friday.
