wheeling and dealing



Walking for a cure

Coin jars are being placed this week at all Food Services outlets across campus in honour of Jesse's Journey – A Father's Tribute.

John Davidson's journey is for his son, Jesse, who suffers from duchenne muscular dystrophy.

John left Newfoundland on April 10 and is currently walking across Canada to raise funds for genetic research. Western, in coordination with the University Students' Council, is hosting "Journey Week" to raise awareness of John's admirable cause.

Originally from London, John passed through the city on Aug. 8 to a welcoming party at J.W. Little Stadium. Ian Armour, president of the USC was present and decided to organize the coin jars so students would have an opportunity to contribute.

"We wanted the students to be made aware of John's commitment to his journey and at the same time allow them to help causes within the larger London community."

A dollar a day keeps the landlord away

Wondering how to avoid being drowned in red tape this school year? If so, head down to the University Community Centre atrium any day this week from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for financial information being provided by the USC.

Need further financial help? Worry not, a whole host of activities for this year are being planned to assist in managing your money and budgeting for survival.
