Walk-a-thon raises $7,000

The Meadowvale Mustangs’ second annual Movin’ Mustangs Walk-a-thon raised nearly $7,000 recently.

Families and the school’s PTO joined forces for the event. They plan to continue to raise money over the next few years to update the school’s playground to make it a safe environment for the students at the school.

“We are hoping to install at least one piece of equipment yet this fall if the weather cooperates,” a school official said in a news release. “Even with the chilly weather on Oct. 5, all the students had a fun afternoon and it was a huge success.”
