Other children participating in the race included Grade 4 pupil Shane Neusteter (the student leader of the group), Dylan Dunn (Grade 1), Nayeli Loewen (Grade 2), Gabbie Morris (Grade 2) and Sammy Epp (Grade 1). The entire school population participated in the different activities at stations set up all throughout the playground. Principal Charlotte Wall said the event raised over $8,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation last year. (AE/Craig Bradford)
