Preschoolers to Race Trikes to Raise Money for St. Jude Hospital

A Trike-A-Thon event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will be held on Monday, July 16 at the Rainbow Child Development Center located at 10 Edward Street in Worcester. The volunteer Coordinator for this event is Linda Mayuski, Preschool Program Coordinator, who encourages everyone to participate. By participating in or attending the event, you will help raise funds for the world’s premier pediatric cancer research center. These funds will help St. Jude in its ongoing fight against childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
The Preschool staff will be incorporating bicycle safety and awareness into the curriculum during the week prior to this event. Preschoolers will use matchbox cars in lieu of riding trikes. The Preschool staff will also ask families to ask friends and family members to sponsor this event by giving a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s research Hospital.
“Our goal in holding this event is to help the children of the world who are stricken with diseases like cancer, AIDS, sickle cell diseases and other catastrophic diseases,” said Linda Mayuski. “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a world leader in the fight against these diseases, and they have made great progress because of the help of people who participate in and donate to events like Trike-A-Thon.”
If you are interested in participating or making a donation, please call Linda Mayuski at 508.791.6849.
