The Global Awareness Team at Rick Hansen Secondary donated $6,000 this week to Free the Children, an international charity that works to empower poor communities around the world. The students ran multiple fundraisers this year to help raise money to adopt a village in Ecuador through Free the Children. A member from the organization attended the awards ceremony on Tuesday to accept the donation.
