Brookline's Lincoln School holding walkathon for Haiti Wednesday

 Posted by Brock Parker May 3, 2011 03:09 PM
Students in the middle grades from Brookline’s Lincoln School will walk to each of the town’s schools Wednesday to raise money for earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
The second annual “Hope for Haiti Walkathon” held by the school is intended to symbolize the eight-mile walk that the typical Haitian student has each day to school, according to the school. Students in the lower grades of the Kindergarten through 8th grade school will make a shorter walk to the Runkle and Pierce schools.
Earlier this year the Lincoln School adopted Haiti’s Kapin School as its sister school as part of a commitment to help support the sister school’s efforts to rebuild and sustain itself after last year’s destructive earthquake.
A walkathon held by the school last year raised $15,000 for the Haiti recovery efforts.
Students have been collecting pledges hope to raise another $15,000 in this year’s walkathon. The walkathon kicks off a series of events the school is hosting in its “Hope for Haiti” series. Wednesday night, the Lincoln PTO will host a Haiti Dinner in the school’s cafeteria and students at the school will participate in a Haitian Sports Day in June.
Those interested in contributing to Help for Haiti can send checks payable to Lincoln PTO to the Lincoln School at 19 Kennard Road, Brookline, MA, 02445.
