/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Wish comes true for 10 year old boy thanks to students at Bedford Park who created the Kristen Clutterbuck Wish/



    Students raised one million pennies last year to help grant a wish

    TORONTO, Sept. 19 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:  Students at Bedford Park Public School, who raised one million
           pennies in support of The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada,
           will meet the wish child they funded through the Kristen
           Clutterbuck Wish.

           Ten year old Patrick, who has Tuberous Sclerosis and Epilepsy, had
           his wish come true - a trip to Walt Disney World - thanks to the
           generousity of the students, families, teachers and community
           members of Bedford Park Public School and The Children's Wish
           Foundation.

           In September 2007, a devoted and respected teacher of the school,
           Kristen Clutterbuck, passed away from cancer at the age of 33. The
           students, teachers, parents and her friends embarked on a
           campaign to collect one million pennies which were donated to
           Children's Wish in Kristen's memory.

    WHEN:  Monday September 22, 2008
           10:45 a.m.

    WHERE: Bedford Park Public School
           81 Ranleigh Avenue
