Hundreds of students from one local school took time out to make their school and community a better place.

Students, staff and parish priests took part in the 9th Annual Seton Walk-A-Thon to raise money for curriculum and programs at Seton Catholic School.

First through eighth graders walked three miles, from the school to Prospect Park and back again.  Pre-K and kindergarten students walked a shorter route.

Students raised pledge support in advance of the Walk-A-Thon.

“The entire Seton Catholic School family enjoys this fundraiser so much.  It focuses on physical fitness and the importance of keeping our bodies healthy,” said Seton principal Jane Barrett.
