May 10, 2019
Kiddie Academy of Abingdon raised $10k to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital by hosting a Trike-A-Thon.The money was raised during a “Trike-a-Thon” hosted by the Academy on April 12.
Academy Director Heather Schorah said “We shared the event with the children and families and were amazed at how quickly we raised money. St.Jude’s set an original goal of $1,200, which we doubled in the first day. Then, we increased our goal to $10,000!”
All of the children were excited about the money they were raising, how they were helping other children, and loved bringing their bikes and helmets to school to show their friends and teachers. The staff and parent volunteers had so much fun watching the smiles and laughs of the children and enjoyed helping them learn to pedal and ride their bikes.
“’Community Begins Here’ is more than just a slogan for us,” Schorah emphasized. “It’s rooted in everything we do and what we teach the children.”
