Our Lady of Good Counsel School -Annual Math-A-Thon for St. Jude’s Research Hospital

 

Our Lady of Good Counsel will be hosting the third annual Math-A-Thon to benefit St. Jude’s Research Hospital. Originally organized by Sofia Biondi, a 7th grader at Our Lady of Good Counsel School, and her sister, Juliana, a graduate of the school, Sofia will again lead the school in collecting donations for the St. Jude’s Research Hospital.

Sofia and her sister, Juliana, began the fundraiser several years ago as part of their participation on the Kids for Kids Junior Committee of kidsforkidsnyc.org.  Kids for Kids was created as an umbrella organization to benefit St. Jude’s Research Hospital.  The sisters are long time members of the Kids for Kids organization.

Stated principal, Tara Hynes, “We are excited to participate every year in this worthwhile fundraiser.  Our students enjoy the challenge of the Math-A-Thon while raising funds that will help other children.  It is a challenge every year to increase our donations. The student donations for this year are on track to exceed previously raised amounts of $5100 in 2016, and $6050 in 2017. “
