Seventh-graders raise $2,220 for hospital

January 09, 1995

Westminster West Middle School seventh-graders recently participated in the school's annual math-athon for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Braden Cadenilli, Becki Ridgway and Ikaika Kobashigawa were the top three fund-raisers for the program, which raised $2,221.65.

The students were given a math book with 200 problems to complete in a three-week period. Students got pledges for the number of problems worked. About 80 seventh-graders participated.

The Team 7 eighth-grade student government at the school also helped the needy by organizing a canned food drive last month, collecting 500 items to be donated to Carroll County Food Sunday. Class 3 will enjoy a pizza party for donating the most items in a competition between five social studies classes on the team.
