ASPEN NEWS:

Thanks to the wonderful students (and families) and enthusiastic competition between classrooms, Aspen Elementary School students collected $1,080 for Project Eliminate in just four days.

Their efforts will save 600 mothers and all their babies in various countries of the world from the dreaded disease tetanus. A chain of 600 links decorated with syringes, one link for each mother and baby saved from the disease, will be displayed in the front hallway of the school for the remainder of the year as a visual reminder of the school’s incredible participation.

The students presented the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos with the $1,080 check.

National Elementary Honor Society, Natural Helpers and K-Kids, the sponsors of this event, would like to thank everyone involved for making this fundraiser such a fantastic success.
