Casterlin School Students Raise Almost $5000 for Hurricane Harvey, Trinity County Fire Victims
This is a press release from Casterlin School:
These caring and dedicated students raised $4779.20, partly by donation, partly by per-lap sponsorship. Three students walked/ran almost 4 miles, and the average lap count was over 20 laps (a 4-year-old ran 24 laps!). One student raised $1310 in donations, by far the largest collection, and all participating students were excited to be instrumental in helping others.
The event was such a positive experience for everyone. As students progressed, there was such a sense of camaraderie and support. The many parents who joined in to help count laps and cheer on the students were equally enthused.
After the Walk-a-Thon, everyone enjoyed a spaghetti dinner provided by the After School program. Then families went back to the field, this time for a Color Run organized by Debbie Rodas and Jessica Champ. It was a great way to end the event, and fun was had by all.
Thanks go to all the family, friends, and community members, staff, and especially the students of Casterlin School, that made this fundraiser such a success. Helping others, especially those in such need, is a wonderful learning experience for everyone.
Funds have been delivered to Habitat for Humanity for Hurricane Harvey victims and Trinity County for fire relief.
