Cannelton Elementary recently hosted the 39th annual St. Jude’s Bike-A-Thon May 7, coordinated by Mrs. Charlene Hemmings.
Students rode 10 miles escorted by Cannelton Street Commissioner David Marsh, showing their support for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Overall, the children raised $2,204.20 for the hospital by getting sponsors to donate to them to ride in the Bike-A-Thon.
Each year, Waupaca donates a bike and safety helmet to the student that raises the most money for the charity. This year, we had three students very close.
