    OCVTS Joins Race For the Cure

    OCEAN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY- The OCVTS Performing Arts Academy Friends and Family Team not only participated in the Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, last weekend, but won the School Challenge for participation in the High School Division for this Central/Southern New Jersey event. Over 50 team members from throughout the Ocean County Vocational Technical School district walked, ran, or made donations to support the team. Team Co-Captain Tierney Meeker, Social Studies Teacher at PAA accepted a plaque on behalf of the team during an awards ceremony.

    According to Team Co-Captain Mary Huhmann, Vocal Instructor at PAA, "Personally I have been participating since 2002 and when this event moved to Great Adventure three years ago I realized it would be great for our students to get involved in such a rewarding community service opportunity. Many of our team members have had encounters with breast cancer through their family and friends, in fact some of our team members are cancer survivors. With the state of the economy right now, research funding is just not there, so events like this are so important to help raise money. The majority of the proceeds will go to breast cancer research right here in our area."

    The PAA Friends and Family Team has raised over $1500. That total will continue to climb as donations will be accepted through November 15th. Anyone interested in making a donation can go to http://www.komencsnj.org.
