-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

Chiefland Elementary School has a lot of things going for it.

One of those positives is an awesome relationship with the North-Central Florida March of Dimes.

For 14 years, CES teacher Robin Hardee has organized the school?s effort in the Walk Mania.

This year?s fund-raising event was the "Walk for Babies" –which educates school children about premature babies and neonatal care.

Approximately 60 schools covering 11 counties participated in the Walk, which took place March 13.

Cherie Rubin, youth development director for the March of Dimes out of Gainesville, said Chiefland Elementary was one of the top fund-raisers out of all the schools participating.

"They're always one of the top one or two out of all the counties," Rubin said.

On a whole, Chiefland Elementary raised $6,500.

The top fund-raising class was Cynthia Hughes' second grade class, which collected $1,740 towards the cause.

The class will be treated to a pizza party for its unselfish work.

Each student went around to parents, family, friends and local businesses for pledges.
