St. Jude’s Trike a thon

Friday May 3rd, 20 children from Freedom Childcare Center participated in the 3rd annual St. Jude’s Trike a thon.   Before the windy weather the children put on their helmets and rode their bikes around the childcare parking lot for more than an hour.

Their efforts raised $620.00, that will be sent to St. Jude’s children’s hospital.

A huge thank you to the many volunteers from St. Thomas Lutheran Church and one of the preschooler’s grandparents who came out to help.
