MAHOPAC, N.Y.— School may have just started, but students and staff at Fulmar Road wasted no time in helping victims of the devastating hurricanes that have left so many homeless.
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” joined together on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 19, including students, administrators, staff and MTA members, to rally for the cause. Each participant was asked to donate $5 to the Red Cross.
“We ran, played a version of freeze tag as well as a caterpillar tag game,” Czuy said. “To finish this beautiful showing of kindness, all of the participants spent a few minutes meditating and sending good thoughts to all those affected by the recent hurricanes,” said Jones.
School Principal Gary Chadwick said he was impressed with what the staff and students were able to complish.
“Children are often reminded to spread kindness,” he said. “This event showcased the caring of our community—we could not have been more proud.”
