Shirley & Moriches, NY - May 17, 2018 - William Floyd Middle School and Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary School recently welcomed Chris Pendergast and the ALS Ride for Life for quick stops along the path of their 21st annual “Ride for Life,” a trek from the east end of Long Island to New York City, which is designed to raise funds and awareness in the battle against ALS (amytrophic lateral sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Students lined up outside of each school holding banners and cheered him and fellow Ride for Lifers on for all that they have and continue to accomplish in fighting the battle against the disease. Each school provided a donation to help assist them in their efforts - $800 from Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary School and $500 from William Floyd Middle School, with an additional $500 on the way.
William Floyd Elementary School fifth graders also met with Mr. Pendergast earlier this year and are holding fundraisers to help as well.
