MAHOPAC, N.Y. -- The students at Fulmar Road Elementary School in Mahopac are lending a helping hand.
Teachers Andrea Jones and Christine Czuy organized Fulmar’s Charity Walk/Run for Hurricane Relief, which raised more than $3,000 for the Red Cross’s hurricane-relief efforts.
More than 240 of “Fulmar’s Finest”, including students, administrators, and staff joined together on Sept. 19 to rally for the cause. Each participant was asked to donate $5 to the Red Cross and they played games like freeze tag and caterpillar tag.
“Children are often reminded to spread kindness,” said Principal Gary Chadwick. “This event showcased the caring of our community—we could not have been more proud."
