Senior Gets Closer to the Edge(walk)

A few steps closer to making a senior wish come true

Students from Barrie's Kempenfelt School have done their part to grant a senior's wish.

87 year old Gloria Rutkay was granted her wish by the Senior Wish Association thanks, in part, to fundraising done by students at the school.

She will be going 116 storeys up to do the Edgewalk at the CN Tower, in Toronto.

Recently she was guest of honour, at a school assembly, where students read her poems and letters of encouragement.

The adventure will take place on May 28.
