Smiles and cheers: Easter Seals ambassador kicks off school tour
Cameron Gordon to visit 60 schools in 6 days to collect donations
P.E.I.'s Easter Seals ambassador received a warm welcome Wednesday as he began his tour of 60 schools in six days to collect donations.
Cameron Gordon was all smiles as he visited East Wiltshire Intermediate in Cornwall, P.E.I., where he received hugs and applause — and a cheque for Easter Seals.
The Easter Seals campaign on P.E.I. is a project of the Charlottetown Rotary Club, and supported by Rotary clubs in Summerside, P.E.I., and Montague, P.E.I.
Last year, the campaign raised $105,000 to support organizations that help Island children with disabilities.

Each year, a young ambassador is selected to be the face and voice of the campaign. Gordon, a Grade 10 student at Colonel Gray High School in Charlottetown, was chosen to be the 2017 ambassador.
He continues his P.E.I. school tour Thursday at 8:45 a.m. when he visits Englewood School.
