Mills Pond Students Sweating for a Cause

Fourth- and fifth-graders in the Cares Club at Mills Pond Elementary School worked up quite a sweat for a charitable cause on April 12.

The students, along with club advisers and teacher volunteers, participated in a boot camp fundraiser to benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. In total, approximately 30 students were involved in the event, which required a donation of at least $5 to participate. In addition to raising awareness about the disease, the students garnered close to $700 in pledges. 

The gymnasium was set up in different stations, and students rotated throughout, doing sit-ups, planks, push-ups, relay races and jumping jacks in small groups.
