HADLEY, Mass. (WGGB) — Tonight, for ABC40 Honor Roll, we feature Hadley schools.
Earlier this month, they held their first annual 5K road race to benefit ‘Helping Hearts for Hadley Schools.’
It’s an organization that strives to encourage adults and children in the Hadley community to get active while at the same time raising money for special initiatives in schools.
The first initiative focused on improving technology.
They got a lot of help from the TommyCar Auto Group, which matched up to $5,000 in donations.
“With Carla’s help, I mean, that’s just going to get that right where we need to be and keep us up where we should be level-wise around the area of schooling and education and our students and teachers deserve this,” says Stacey Mushenski from Helping Heart for Hadley Schools.
6,000 runners and walkers took part in the race, which raised more than $20,000.
