Students and staff members at Hicksville Middle School recently got moving during their annual Health Walk to bring awareness to Merkel Cell Skin Cancer. The middle schoolers put their best foot forward as they circled around the school’s outdoor track.
Organized by Hicksville Middle School Health Teacher Anthony Tussie in collaboration with the Health Education Department, the event promoted physical activity and celebrated school spirit while raising close to $500 for the American Cancer Society.
The annual Health Walk was created to bring attention and awareness to important causes locally and nationally.
