Thank you, Champions!

By Children Rising

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Children Rising’s Champions for Children Walk/Run!
The event was a huge success with costumes, prizes and lots of friends and family. The weather was perfect for snocones after the race, and the youth marimba band made the day even sunnier with their peppy music. Overall, there were over 170 participants and volunteers. Several school students walked in order to raise money for their classes to go to science camp. The coveted iPad 2 went to Wilson Leong as the top fundraiser of almost $3,000!
