Ryan Reaching Out

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Archbishop Ryan High School is reaching out to the cause of childhood cancer. The faculty and school community are donating to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to honor the life of Jesenia Perez, the 11 year old sister of junior student, Jessica Perez. Jesenia was diagnosed with cancer at age nine and received treatment at St. Christopher’s Hospital here in Philadelphia. She passed away in November 2009.

On Friday, March 12, many of Ryan’s faculty will be shaving their heads in support of childhood cancer and the Perez family at Fadó Irish Pub located at 1500 Locust Street in Center City Philadelphia. So far, the faculty, students and friends of the school community have donated over $7,900 towards their goal of $10,000. Please help team A.R. in doing their part in the fight against cancer. For more information on Ryan’s involvement with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, contact John Farington at If you would like to donate this cause you can visit: keyword: Archbishop Ryan.

Also, in April, Ryan’s world language teacher, Mr. Joseph Muto, will be walking approximately 75 miles to Ventnor City, New Jersey from Philadelphia to raise money for this cause. To support Mr. Muto, you can visit the website and type keyword: Muto.

Editor’s note: I had the journalism teacher run a little contest with the students who are up for editor of the school newspaper next year.  He selected the one attached.
