Lindell Elementary School students, student athletes and staff members headed out onto the boardwalk for their annual “walk it forward” fundraising event on Oct. 6. This year, the effort supported the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The compassion and teamwork of all involved resulted in $2,200 in donations to help save lives through this cause.
Classes marched to the beat of Lindell’s drummers, Shaquile Johnson, Micheal Rossi and Alonso Espinet. Students proudly held up a banner, signs and posters filled with positive messages.
The group then recited several cheers and performed their school song, all based on the themes of respect, acceptance, compassion and helping others. As in years past, boardwalk patrons stopped to applaud this rally for kindness.
