Sixth-graders at The Brandeis School in Lawrence organized a school wide walkathon on that sought to raise money for ALEH, an Israeli-based organization that provides care to severely disabled children in Israel.
One hundred strolled from Putnam Boulevard to Ocean Boulevard in Atlantic Beach on April 29. After Sunday’s walk $3,028 was raised, but the campaign is continuing through the Internet.
