Hart Walks for Autism

More than two dozen Hart students helped at last weekend's Walk Now for Autism.
 
Sixth-grade Quest students took part in the walk as part of their community service requirement for Quest. Fifteen students did the walk and another 10 students volunteered at the event, which was held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
 
The annual walk is a fundraiser for Autism Speaks, a group dedicated to discovering the causes, prevention, treatments and cure for autism. This is the second year Hart students have done the walk.
 
The Hart team raised about $1,000 for the walk. The entire walk has brought in nearly $330,000, according to the web site. The logo at the right was featured on the Hart students' T-shirts.
 
Congratulations to Hart's students who helped with this worthwhile event!

Quest is part of the sixth-grade wheel of electives. Students cover several topics, including life skills, social skills, team building, stress, behavior, decision making and much more. Quest students must complete at least 1 hour of community service.
