More than 100 students from the Island Trees High School National Honor Society and the Memorial Middle School National Junior Honor Society joined together to participate in the annual “Step-Out Walk to End Diabetes.”
Held on Sunday, Sept. 29, students and staff from both schools completed the five mile walk along the Boardwalk at Jones Beach. Both groups raised more than $6,000 in the event.
"Thank you to Mrs. Nieves, advisor to the ITMMS NJHS and members of both honor societies who joined in the walk, and the staff, families and friends that helped support a very important cause. Great job!" said Dr. Roger Bloom, Principal, Island Trees Memorial Middle School.
