Thursday night the Special Olympics of Pictou County gymnastics program, which includes 12-14 kids on average, received a $1,365 donation from the local CIBC Wood Gundy office.
The donation came from part of the funds CIBC Wood Gundy raised on Miracle Day, the first Wednesday in December. They donate their fees and commissions in support of children’s charities.
To date Miracle Day has raised $69 million nationally since it began in 1984.
