League School of Greater Boston celebrated Autism Acceptance month by hosting their annual 5K Walk/Run for Autism on Friday, April 16th. With help from sponsors, teachers, staff, friends and families, the school crossed the finish line while setting a new fundraising record of $35,000.00! There were over 150 participants and 11 teams. All funds raised will go towards our new outdoor learning space and playground on campus.
Because of pandemic guidelines, the event was held virtually for the second year in a row. On Friday, League School staff and students kicked off the event with a Fitness Fun Day where the students participated in activities while learning about health and wellness. Inclement weather forced the event inside but did not damper the day or the spirts. Earlier in the month, some students also took part in the shirt printing process at AMGc Sports in North Attleboro, MA.
“Any time we have more than 150 members of the community coming together in support of League, we consider it a tremendous success. But to do it while raising more than $35,000, to help our students, is incredible.”, Tim McCabe, League School’s Director of Development.
League School would like to thank all of our generous sponsors: Direct Federal Credit Union, O’LYN Roofing, JBK Management – McDonald’s, Lockwood/McKinnon, AAFCPAs, Siemens Healthineers, Dedham Savings, Dempsey Insurance Agency, and Middlesex Savings Bank.
