Cheers echoed across the David Weir K-8 Preparatory Academy campus on Friday as the entire school ran for a charitable cause.
“The students helped raise money for Friends of Jaclyn Foundation as part of helping them become aware that there are people out there who are suffering,” said Larissa Sherrod, special education resource and transitional kindergarten teacher.
David Weir students have been doing a Hoopla Charity Run as a fundraiser for the last three years. This year the students raised $700 for the foundation and with money donated from the principal, Martha Lacy, and staff it will be about $1,000 for the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.
