Bre­anna Clarke has had her best year yet rais­ing funds for the Janeway Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

On Satur­day, May 12 the 10 year old held the fifth an­nual Bre­anna’s Walk for the Janeway in Main Brook, in the process rais­ing a grand to­tal of $3,600.

This is the high­est to­tal she’s raised in a sin­gle year.

Through her walk, Bre­anna’s goal is to help the sick chil­dren of New­found­land and Labrador re­ceive needed care at the Janeway in St. John’s.

Bre­anna and her mother, Regina Brom­ley-Clarke, thanked ev­ery­one who came out for the walk-a-thon and those who do­nated re­fresh­ments.

They also ex­tended ap­pre­ci­a­tion to ev­ery­one who sup­ported Bre­anna’s other fundrais­ing projects, in­clud­ing a rum­mage sale and two bin­gos, re­ceiv­ing do­na­tions from as far away as Labrador City and Fort McMur­ray, Alta.

Bre­anna will be pre­sent­ing the size­able do­na­tion at the Janeway Telethon in Cor­ner Brook on Sun­day, June 3, be­tween 10-10:30 am.
