Bikers enjoy the spring weather, but St. Jude is the big winner, again

Posted April 16, 2014 at 2:06 pm

Students at the Early Childhood Center enjoyed near perfect weather to be outside riding around a track at Mountain View Recreational Park.

On Thursday of last week, students held their annual Trike-A-Thon in order to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Several students were recognized as raising the most money for the cause, including Breeli Fitzgerald, who raised $550, and Addison Whittenburg with $445.

This year, the ECC raised $2,613.40 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Since the Clinton County School District has been participating in the Trike-A-Thon students have rasied more than $40,000 during the past 12 years to help care for children who are fighting to stay alive.
