ABC40 Honor Roll – Kids Walk for Great Cause

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – Students at Mittineague Elementary School in West Springfield participated in a 5K walk to help end childhood cancer.

The kids raised money for St. Jude’s children’s hospital. They reached out to businesses asking for donations. In total the students raised over 1,500 dollars.

Each grade did something different to be part of the project from decorating shirts to collecting and counting the money totals. The kids felt a great sense of accomplishment and the walk was a huge success.
