A group of community-minded Sanford School students planned a 5K on their campus last month to raise money for the American Heart Association. A team of upper school students involved with the Jefferson Awards for Public Service publicized the October 25th race, marked the route, and recruited volunteers to cheer on runners and raised $1,000 for the charity. About 50 teachers, parents, students and friends of the school jogged the scenic course through the woods and hills of Sanford. “We were proud to support the American Heart Association,” remarked Lauren Ziady, Sanford upper school counselor and Jefferson Award program administrator. “Our students worked hard to create a successful event. The cause was important to them, and I’m proud of their dedication and commitment,” she said.
