Cecily’s Fund Run
Date: Friday 25 May 2018
Time: from 17:00
Students from the Secondary School are organizing our participation in the Course à Travers Pully (CATP) in support of Cecily’s Fund again this year and we hope that our participation will be higher than ever.
Runners may collect their dossards from 16:30 at the ISL table inside the Maison Pulliérane (the building with the red, striped shutters in Pully centre, next to the church). The ISL table is in the big hall, next to the stage. Belongings and valuables may be left there, with Mrs Ivett.
Please note this is a crowded, public event. Teachers, staff, and parents will be running with the students, however, the students are under the full responsibility of their parents during the event.

Those not running can support by sponsoring one of our many runners, or by coming along to the Maison Pulliérane to cheer the runners. This is a great opportunity for a nostalgic return to our original home community, and to raise money for a “grass-roots” charity that gives many children the future they have been denied.
What is Cecily’s Fund?
It is an organization that raises money to provide education for Zambian children orphaned by parents with AIDS. The fund is based in Kitwe, Zambia where almost 23% of all children have lost one or both parents to AIDS. ISL is a long-time supporter of the good work undertaken by Cecily’s Fund.
Cecily Eastwood, who was student of Mr and Mrs Ivett, is the young woman the fund is named after. Cecily tragically died in a road accident in Zambia in 1997 whilst helping these children. As a result, her parents and friends decided to accomplish her goal and continue supporting the orphans Cecily had set out to help.
