Students at St. Theresa School had their first ever cancer walk to raise funds for cancer research. Children in various grades walked around the block where the school is located, as parents, relatives and friends pledging financial support to the students that will be donated. The students made signs of support to cancer survivors, including relatives and friends. The proceeds raised will be sent to a number of cancer organizations.
