The Sewanhaka Central High School District varsity gymnastics team participated in Cartwheel for a Cure, an annual gymnastics fundraising event in Nassau County, on Jan. 17. Along with participating in a regular gymnastics meet, the team was tasked with completing as many cartwheels as they could in three minutes.
Sewanhaka High School student Zoe Amadike had the highest number of cartwheels for the team, cartwheeling 149 times. Floral Park Memorial High School student Taylor Kropf helped raised the most money for the district, and through donations the team raised $1,000.
This year, the event benefitted the Madison Milio Tribute Fund. Milio, who was the daughter of two district employees, passed away from cancer in December.
