Small Wonders Trike-a-thon raises funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital


The students of Small Wonders/Back Mountain ​recently held a Trike-a-thon to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Prior to riding their bikes, they learned safety lessons from Bikewell Bear and Pedals the Bunny. A representative from Northeast Highway Safety Program also taught them about how to properly wear their helmets and reviewed bike safety rules. To date, Small Wonders has raised more than $30,000 for St. Jude since 1999. This year’s annual event raised $1,800. Shown are children representing each of the classrooms: Mason Medrano, George Layaou,, Isabella Yurkanin, Jessica Krispin, Linda Somoga (director) Ellie Harris, Austin Mucha, Wyatt Love, Marlayna Layaou, Grace Kostick ,and Calli Shatrowskas .
