During ALS Awareness Month, Rocky Point Middle School sought to continue to support efforts to raise funds for ALS research by donating more than $600 to the ALS Ride for Life event this May. The funds, which had been raised as a result of a National Junior Honor Society fundraiser, were presented during the ride’s annual one hundred plus mile patient wheelchair ride across Long Island. Ride participants stopped at the school as they worked their way across Long Island. Present at the event were Ride for Life President Chris Pendergast, Dr. Frank Verdone and other ALS patients.
