Moscow Elementary Center raises almost $10,000 for children and adults with disabilities

Students, faculty, staff and parents gathered at Moscow Elementary Center in Mount Cobb recently to celebrate the end of their fundraising efforts for WNEP's Ryan's Run. This year, the school, which is part of North Pocono School District, raised $9759. Students throughout the school were sponsored to run laps during the charity run-a-thon. The funds raised will benefit children and adults with disabilities at Allied Services.

“The administration and faculty at Moscow Elementary Center are proud of all the students who participated and dedicated time and energy to supporting their community. As a school, we’re happy to be able to support Allied Services and the children and adults they help” commented Jeff Hatala, Principal.

Ms. Riley Marcks, a learning support teacher at Moscow Elementary Center recently participated in the TCS New York City Marathon to raise additional funds for patients at Allied Services. This was her second time raising funds as member of the Ryan’s Run team.
