PJs with a Purpose

World Cancer Day is coming up on February 4, and Brockton will once again be participating in Team Finn’s Pjs for a Purpose. PJs for a Purpose raises funds and awareness for children with cancer. On Friday, February 3rd, students and staff are encouraged to bring a minimum donation of $2 and wear their coziest PJs to school!
 
“PJs with a Purpose is a fun, educational, FINNspirational event to provide school kids and opportunity to help sick kids in treatment.”
-Team Finn
 
How are the funds raised helping kids?
In 2014 Team Finn met with doctors and researchers to discuss how money raised from PJs with a Purpose events can be used to create, develop and purchase virtual reality technology that will calm and distract children going through particularly difficult cancer treatments.  A pilot project was launched in 2015 and the money raised by schools in 2015, 2016 and 2017 has been (and will be) earmarked to implement the virtual reality program.
