Tikes Ride Trikes for St. Jude’s

Some of the valley’s littlest residents are proving you’re never too young to raise money for a worthy cause.

Preschoolers in Liberty held a Trike-a-thon Friday to benefit St. Jude’s Hospital. The kids are students at Villa Maria Teresa Elementary School.

Each student accepted donations to ride big wheels, bikes, and scooters around an obstacle course.

At the end, they each got a safety sticker from a police officer.

“The kids just come and they have fun. They bring their bikes, they learn about bike safety and they raise money for St. Jude’s Hospital,” said Sister LuAnn Szematowicz, Villa Maria Elementary School.

The school also holds a math-a-thon each year.  Since 1989, they’ve donated $4,800 to St. Jude’s Hospital.
