O'Dea High School

During the 2019 Easter Vacation, eleven O’Dea students spent their time in a small town outside of Cusco, Peru, working to help build Greenhouses for the community. After four days of hard work at 10,000 feet elevation, the Irish finished one Greenhouse and dug the foundation for another. The community was so grateful for all the work done which will allow the community to grow and sell crops and flowers year round to sell at the local market to support their families. In addition, the boys got to visit World Heritage site, Macchu Picchu. It was an amazing experience that benefited both the community of Cusco and all the young men at O’Dea who attended.

The 5th Annual Beards for Bros campaign has come to an end and the O’Dea students and community raised over $10,000 for adolescent medicine research at Seattle Children’s Hospital. The closing assembly featured the popular beard contest in which student judges from Holy Names Academy judged student beard growers in categories such as “Best Chinstrap,” “Best Goatee”, and “Best Effort!” Thank you to all students, faculty, staff, families, community members, and alumni that helped support this important cause!

Beards for Bros – The Fighting Irish are Fighting Cancer!

Posted February 4, 2019

O'Dea High School

O’Dea’s 5th annual Beards for Bros campaign, raising money to support adolescent medicine at Children’s Hospital, is officially underway. Students have until February 22nd to raise money for the campaign, and students who raise at least $100 can grow a beard from February 25th through March 29th, when we hold our closing Beards for Bros assembly which includes the official “beard judging” ceremony. Donations should be made through O’Dea’s Fighting Irish Fighting Cancer guild website. Donors should specify which student’s fundraising efforts they are supporting by putting the student’s name in the “Name of student I am supporting” section. Any student raising a minimum of $100 by February 22nd is eligible to participate in beard growing!

Students do not have to raise $100 to participate! They can also simply donate towards a classmate’s fundraising efforts, and/or they can purchase exclusive B4B merchandise! This year we have long-sleeved t-shirts, lanyards, and decals for sale. All proceeds go towards the Fighting Irish Fighting Cancer guild. The purchase of a B4B shirt earns a student free relaxed dress every Friday in March (he needs to wear the shirt to get relaxed dress). Let’s get 100% participation from the student body!

Thank you to all students, families, alumni, faculty and staff for their support of this important campaign!
