In honor of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) Awareness Month, the Marion Street Elementary School community in the Lynbrook Public School District once again gathered to welcome members of the ALS Ride for Life Foundation. The Marion Street Student Council organized a fundraiser to support the foundation’s search for a cure.
Students and staff gathered around the school track with posters and signs that displayed encouraging messages. Music teacher Anna Upston led the students in singing a song before the festivities began. Members of the ALS Ride for Life Foundation paraded through the Marion Street crowd, surrounded by applause and cheer. The event is also held in memory of Chris Pendergast, who was diagnosed with ALS and visited Marion Street on multiple occasions for past fundraising events.
The Marion Street Student Council presented the foundation with a $1,985 check, which will be used for ALS research.
