CORN­WALL, On­tario – A cheque for $2,086.67 was pre­sented to Rachel’s Kids on be­half of the Rose Bowl and stu­dents of École Se­condaire Catholique La Ci­tadelle.

The Rose Bowl, which took place on Oct. 2, saw the St. Joseph Sec­ondary School Pan­thers chal­lenge the La Ci­tadelle Pa­tri­ots. Funds raised dur­ing the an­nual foot­ball game were in hon­our of Alaya Ri­ley. Alaya, a 16-year-old stu­dent of La Ci­tadelle, passed away after bat­tling os­teosar­coma on Sept. 19, 2018.

“To­day, Dec. 18, 2018 would be Alaya’s 17th birth­day, and al­though she is no longer with us, her legacy lives on through her friends and fam­ily,” read a state­ment from Rachel’s Kids in a press re­lease.

Heart­felt trib­utes con­tinue to be posted on the Face­book page Alaya’s Jour­ney.
