They intended to raise money to host a breakfast for veterans on Veteran’s day and to host a family in need this holiday season.
The breakfast was going to be the most expensive part, but it was recently sponsored by the American Legion.
“We the People will be volunteering their time, and we won’t have to pay for the food or for a facility, so it just didn’t seem necessary to have the walkathon anymore,” history teacher and We the People sponsor Elizabeth Paternoster said.
Paternoster believes that other fundraising events may occur in the future to raise money for We the People.
“We will have to see,” Paternoster said. “When this team makes it to nationals, when they win a state championship, we will cross that bridge when we get there.”
