Breast Cancer Walk

Connolly students took strides to fight breast cancer at the school’s fifth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk-a-Thon on Oct. 3.

Hosted by Connolly’s student council, with assistance from advisers Susan Stanco and Monique Vaccaro, the event took place during recess periods on the school’s back field.

“In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the children felt the need to support a worthy cause,” Principal Rose Sekelsky said. “They decided to give up their recess to support the thousands of breast cancer patients and survivors.”

Students raised $650 through pledges, which will be donated to Glen Cove CARES, a not-for-profit agency which, according to its website, provides assistance to residents of Glen Cove and neighboring communities coping with the crisis of cancer.

Stanco said that prior to the event, she explained to students the importance of supporting people around the world who are affected by this disease.

“People are going through hard times,” she said. “This is what we can do to help them.”

Superintendent Maria Rianna, Principal Sekelsky and teachers Olga Notskas, Frank Monteleone and George Kearnes also joined the cause, walking lap after lap with students.
