Lacing up their sneakers for a good cause, the fourth and fifth grade members of the Cares Club at Mills Pond Elementary School held a walk-a-thon outside their school.

The annual fundraising event benefits Medical Mission International. Medical Mission is a hospital for the poverty-stricken community in El Salvador. Mills Pond Cares Club advisers Diana Lanze, Kristin Quail and Melissa Taylor, along with Mills Pond teachers, led the students on 10 laps around the building after school with Principal Ireen Westrack cheering them on. The fundraiser garnered more than $2,160.
