The North Babylon High School community was honored at the North Babylon School District Board of Education’s November meeting for continuing to raise remarkable amounts of funds for the ALS Ride for Life program.
With Ride for Life President and Founder Chris Pendergast in attendance to commend NBHS’s ongoing efforts, top-fundraising students and staff members were presented with a “2015 Gold Participant” banner. To date, the district has raised more than $167,000 in the past ten years through various activities, including selling paper hearts to display around the high school, a Chinese auction, wrestling tournaments and walking with the Ride for Life and collecting donations. Top fund-raising students last year include David Beamus, Tayla Fitzroy, Noelle Roth, Gabriella Shank and Terrence Sullivan.
