On Friday, May 9, 2015, CHAH students participated in our 6th Annual Ride for Life ALS walk.
"It's the best day of the year!" said Andy Guzman, a 9th grader who participated in the walk for his 4th consecutive year. A classmate of his, Ailani Cruceta, added "The walk is such an inspiring and amazing experience, I'm so proud to be a CHAH student when we do the ALS walk."
Students accompanied ALS patients in their wheelchairs from Monument Park in Yankee Stadium back to our school in Washington Heights. The students raised $10,000 for research for a cure and were featured on Long Island's News 12 evening news program.
10th grader Zaquan Brewington promised, "I will never give up helping Mr. Pendergast and all the patients of ALS until there is a cure for this terrible disease."
To date, CHAH has raised over $50,000 for the ALS Ride for Life.
