For the month of May, Islip’s Wing Elementary School teamed up with the Children’s Tumor Foundation to bring awareness to neurofibromatosis, often abbreviated as NF. One of the school’s first-graders has this condition.
To end this very special month, Wing students and staff participated in a “Hero Dash” on May 31, joined by Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi. Students wore NF-themed “Brave” capes as they walked and ran for the cause, raising $1,680 dollars for the Tumor Foundation.
