What a way to start a walk-a-thon

Posted

Steeds from the Providence Mounted Command, Riley ridden by Jose Mendez and Charlie ridden by Douglas Gould visited St. Rose of Lima School Friday to lead off the school walk-a-thon, one of the school’s major fundraisers to provide tuition assistance to needy families. Upper level students, accompanied by a police escort walked around City Park as part of a five-mile trek while lower grades, including kindergarteners completed shorter routes either around the school or in the neighborhood. The event included a raffle and when everyone was back at school a visit from Kona Ice. Kindergarten teachers Kayla Dias and Marissa Riley were key walk organizers. Third graders wore their Hope Shirts that teacher Jen Liddle, who is a St. Rose alumni, had her students hand block. The walk also involved some colorful dusting of students.
