LVMS “Students-4-Students” Raises $3,703 for Glenn and the Cure!

Long Valley Middle School’s week-long fundraising event, “Students-4-Students” raised an amazing $3,703 to help Glenn fight cancer! The campaign was developed by Glenn’s LVMS classmates, and supported by the school administration, teachers, staff and everyone at the school! Events included a crazy sock day, hat day, dress like you’re a twin day, jersey day and even outdoor recess.  Who said that supporting a great cause can’t be fun?

Congratulations and many thanks to everyone at LVMS! This is another amazing effort from an amazing community.
