Sherman Students Jump for Charity
Students at Sherman Elementary are jumping their way to raise money for their school and for a local charity. The annual Sherman Jump Fundraiser collects money for the school's PE department, as well as the Ronald McDonald House. The charity they choose changes every year.
These kids have been raising money since February. Today, they held an assembly to present the Ronald McDonald House with a $10,000 check.
"I always like doing the fundraiser," top fundraiser Camden Watts said. "It's always helping. We did the Salvation Army, Ronald McDonald. It's always such a great cause."
Camden raised the most money out of his entire school: more than $1,000. The 630 students at Sherman Elementary raised more than $30,000 this year.
Students who raised the most money won prizes, including being able to throw pies at their teachers.
