Run, walk and crawl event held by students, staff and parents at MEI school

More than 400 students from pre-school to Grade 5,  some as young as three,  took part in the MEI school Heart 2 Heart run, walk and crawl event in Abbotsford on Tuesday to raise funds for an orphanage and school in Haiti.

Teachers and parents also participated.

Last year, the school aimed to raise $40,000 for the orphans and the school and beat that target by $10,000.

They were hoping to do it again this year.

Heart to Heart is a registered non-profit charity based in Canada that supports a children’s home, school, and church in Grande Goave, Haiti.
