Great Beginnings supports St. Jude

The prekindergarten class at Great Beginnings Christian Childcare participated in the annual St. Jude Trike-a-Thon on April 25.

The program teaches safety while playing with toys that can be ridden and serves as a fundraiser for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

For a week prior to the event, each child participating collected donations from sponsors.

Funds raised from the event will be used by the hospital for research to find cures for cancer and other diseases affecting children.

The group had raised $925 by the time of the event, but funds were collected until May 2.
