On Saturday, October 4, the Montgomery Catholic Key Club helped with the Spina Bifida Walk and Roll Fundraiser held at the Montgomery Zoo. The Key Club especially wanted to help with their classmate Ricky Treloar’s team called Rockin’ Ricky. Ricky, an eighth grade student at Montgomery Catholic was born with Spina Bifida. His team was able to raise $900 of the $25,000 raised that day. This money supports children with Spina Bifida and their families throughout the year through education, workshops, meetings, and camps.
The Key Club helped by passing out Nancy’s Italian Ice and helping the children with crafts and face painting.
