Spillane raises money for cancer
The Spillane Middle School community raised almost $10,000 to go toward cancer research through its participation in the St. Jude Math-A-Thon.
The St. Jude Math-a-Thon is a free, education-based program for grades K-8 that benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital while helping students improve their math skills. The program is designed to complement curriculums while teaching students the importance of helping others. To participate, students ask family and friends for pledges to solve math problems in the Math-A-Thon Funbook.
Spillane's donations totaled $9,792 in honor of students' participation in the national math fund raising program, which drew donations from more than 10,000 schools across the country.
"St. Jude is a research institution that develops and shares protocols and expertise to treat deadly childhood diseases," said Christina Hoover, Spillane campus curriculum instructional specialist and event coordinator. "We are proud of our students and honored to be a part of such a giving community."
