For the seventh year, local preschoolers in Pittsford pedaled their tricycles to raise $5,700 for charity through their Trike-A-Thon event.
Students at The Goddard School located in Pittsford — Bushnell’s Basin — geared up, took to their trikes and rode laps around the parking lot. Even the youngest children participated.
The two-day event took place May 23-24 and was part of the school’s ongoing effort to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. At the end of the event, the children had raised $5,700 for the organization, bringing the grand total donated since 2013 to more than $35,000. Families, friends and the community teamed up to support the hospital by pledging a donation for the Trike-A-Thon. All proceeds went to the hospital’s mission of finding cures and saving children.
“Our school’s community recognizes the importance of being generous and helping those in need — especially children,” said Gary Graziano, on-site owner of The Goddard School. “Our annual Trike-A-Thon is a great way for us to teach our students the importance of good citizenship while also having fun.”
