BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater-Raritan High School's St. Jude Children's Hospital Club held its first annual spring carnival at Milltown Primary to benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital.

According to BRHS junior Rahul Ramanathan, treasurer for the club, they began in September 2016 to teach high school students about childhood cancer and spread knowledge about the St. Jude Children's Hospital mission.

"We were able to put this fundraiser together by contacting Milltown principal Matt Lembo, and talking to him about the mission," Ramanathan said. "After he heard about our work in the high school, he was more than happy to share this experience with his students at Milltown as well."

The carnival included an Easter egg hunt, ring toss, prizes, food and more.

Ramanathan said this was the first carnival the club has held, and they are hoping to make it an annual event at the school. At this year's carnival, he said, they had 50 kids come out, and they raised $590.

"The past two years, our club has raised $700 for the St. Jude Children's Hospital by holding a chocolate fundraiser," he said. "Additionally, we held a toy drive last year that collected 150 toys for the children and their families staying at the hospital."

In addition, Ramanathan said, the students made cards for those in the hospital during the holidays.

"In the future, we plan to continue working on our chocolate fundraiser, as well as focus our efforts on a book drive," he said. "We hope to continue growing as a club and organization to help more children suffering with childhood cancer."
