The students at B.J. Ward Elementary School in Bolingbrook recently raised money for the American Cancer Society. through the BJW Walk-a-Thon, an effort led by physical education teacher Luke Collins.

The BJW Walk-A-Thon consisted of classrooms walking each day with a pedometer as part of their PE instruction. The class that walked for the furthest distance at the end of the event, which lasted several weeks, was rewarded with extra PE time.

Students asked friends, family, and neighbors for donations to support their walk. The class that raised the most money was also rewarded with an extra day of PE.
