Charity Champions, Bellport H.S.

They ran their way straight to a grand prize award of $5,000! While at a 5K fundraising marathon they organized, the students at Bellport High School were named the Optimum Community Suffolk County regional Grand Prize winners for all their hard work to raise money and awareness for HELP Suffolk, which provides emergency shelter and other resources for homeless families. After holding an Awake-A-Thon that raised $3,500, the students then organized the Fun Run for those who wanted to put their athletic prowess to good use for the community. In total, the students have donated more than $10,000 to the HELP Suffolk cause.
