The fifth grade had a 3 mile Walk-A-Thon and fundraiser after reading the book A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park.  The book highlights the need for fresh and clean water in third world countries, specifically in Sudan, Africa.  The fundraiser totaled $290.44 and will be sent to an organization called Water for Sudan created by the book’s main character, Salva Dut.  The class walked 3 miles because that is the average amount walked to find clean water in Sudan.  The fifth grade would like to thank everyone that donated!
