Students and staff members at Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School in Island Park got moving during the annual Winner’s Walk to help others in the larger community, held on Oct. 22. Organized by the Student Council in collaboration with the physical education department, the event promoted physical activity and celebrated school spirit while raising approximately $2,100 to support Birthday Wishes of Long Island.
Classes from each grade came together on the field and students put their best foot forward, demonstrating teamwork while encouraging each other throughout the morning of exercise. The proceeds from their fundraising efforts will help homeless children experience the joy of a birthday party.
