Cherry Hill, NJ – Decked out in their favorite Philly sports team jersey’s, the Junior Orthodox Youth, rallied to raise funds for the people of Haiti. St. Thomas was the stage for the event that brought together the youth of the Greek Orthodox community. The Walk-a-thon, brought together kids (from 3rd grade through 6th) from all across the Delaware Valley. In two groups, the kids marched around the gym gaining a check on their tags. Each check off retained them a donation from a sponsor which will go to the Hands of Humanity project in Haiti.
Through out the afternoon, the kids played games and shared lunch in this first ever fundraiser.
