Robbins Lane Raises Money For St. Jude

Written by Sheila Ferrari Thursday, 06 June 2013 00:00

Students at Robbins Lane Elementary School worked to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the school’s annual walk-a-thon, sponsored by the student council. On May 17, student council members had an opportunity to present the money to Caitlyn McFeely, a representative from St. Jude, as well as ask questions about the hospital and its work. The students raised a total of $4,721.20 from the walk-a-thon.

The walk-a-thon took place over two mornings, on Feb. 26 and 28. Students walked laps around the school, with each lap earning them one straw. They then totaled their straws at the end of the event and entered that number on the sponsor sheet, which was taken home and returned with their donation. Each year, the students select a different child-related charity to donate the proceeds of the walk to, with the class representatives bringing the ideas to the student council. In the past, Robbins Lane has raised money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Sunrise Day Camp and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
