The Central High School District once again hosted its One Voice, One Message 5K Run/Walk on April 13.
The event is in its fifth year and is organized by the district’s student ambassadors, Dr. Joseph Netto, the school psychologist at the Meadowbrook Alternative Program, and Robyn Einbinder, a social studies chairperson at Mepham High School.
“Many members of the One Voice, One Message committee displayed tremendous teamwork as they worked together over the course of many weeks to plan the 5K Run/Walk,” said Einbinder.
“The student ambassadors also helped to plan and execute the event, lining the route to cheer on the participants, as well as offering route directional and water stations,” added Netto.
The event raised more than $10,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Several local businesses donated goods and services for the event including food, water and other goodies. Long Island’s KJOY radio station handed out prizes and Legislator Steve Rhoads and Hempstead Town Supervisor Laura Gillen were on hand to present the district with a citation.
