SANBORNTON — Sant Bani elementary and middle school students raised over $1,300 for local and international charities though a Track-A-Thon project this fall.
"Students asked family and friends to sponsor them for the number of laps that they would run around the track during their physical education class and independently during recess," explained the school's K-8 Service Learning Coordinator, Jessica Pine.
Made possible through a collaboration with Physical Education teacher Maya Hardcastle, this fundraising effort is one of the service learning projects that are integrated throughout the Sant Bani curriculum. Some of the charities Sant Bani students brainstormed, researched and selected as recipients of the donations were Franklin Animal Shelter, The Carey House in Laconia, The Water Project, World Wildlife Fund and Unicef USA.
