Gravesend students raise money for sick children
Four teams of Gravesend middle school students raised money for sick children during an event Friday night.
The project started a few months ago at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy.
The goal was to raise money for four children facing life-threatening diseases, including a brain tumor, leukemia and Lyme disease.
Students were placed into teams, each representing the four children.
They managed to raise more than $9,000 for the afflicted children's families.
