As part of a schoolwide effort to spread awareness about children’s cancer, Woods Road Elementary School in the North Babylon School District raised more than $800 during the Go4TheGoal Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer event.
Students and staff members were encouraged to purchase gold-colored shoelaces, the proceeds of which went to Go4TheGoal. Wearing their shoelaces, the students first participated in yoga-inspired activities promoting mindfulness, and then in physical activities including jogging and stretching. The event not only promoted healthy and active lifestyles, but also taught students about the importance of altruism and raising awareness about pediatric cancer.
