Merryhill Preschool supports St. Jude Hospital with Trike-A-Thon
Submitted By Ashley Boarman
Preschoolers at Merryhill School in Milpitas participated in a Trike-A-Thon raising $575 to support cancer research at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. On May 9, students, ages 3 to 5, rode tricycles and riding toys on school grounds and received donations for each completed lap. In conjunction with the Trike-A-Thon, the school celebrated Ms. Yanett Baez-Melchor, a teacher who was diagnosed with leukemia as a teenager and has been cancer-free for five years. In celebration of this important milestone in Ms. Baez-Melchor's life, students threw a special party and brought her flowers.
