I’ve been posting one of these threads once a year for the past couple of years. I’ll include a link to the story from our local paper. This is my old high school, I was a senior in high school during the 2nd marathon dance.
Sadly, these threads don’t usually get much traffic, but I’m incredibly proud of what the kids, and the community, have done over the years. After living in Boston, working for the airline, and travelling all over, I’ve been back in South Glens Falls for many years now.
This year, the kids and community raised a staggering $762,153. Everything raised goes to help people in need in the local area. The kids themselves choose the recipients.
If you need something to make you feel good about kids these days, or people in general, read the links.
