WAIMEA — A Fun Run/Walk, bingo game and silent auction were all part of Waimea Middle School’s “Trek 4 Tech” fundraiser on campus and around town Friday afternoon and evening. Nearly 200 students, their families and community members attended. The event supported the school’s 21st-century tech program.
More than $1,450 was raised in the Principal Challenge alone — pledges collected to celebrate WMS Principal Janice English wearing her red suede stilettos in the run/walk. Dozens of students and adults participated in the 1.5- or 3-mile run/walk.
A wide variety of silent auction items were donated by Waimea restaurants, stores and businesses with sales also benefiting the school’s tech program.
