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!
