The effort originated with two students in Justin Lloyd’s fourthgrade classroom, Raegen B. and Carly K. They came up with the idea and approached him about planning a fundraiser, noting that they wanted to do something to help people facing doctor bills and funeral expenses.

The students decided to split the money evenly between Boston Children’s Hospital and the family of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who died in the attack.

Also helping with the fundraiser were fourth-graders Ansel O., Bethany S., Nathalie K., Claire M, Haven R. and Sierra K.

Students collected money from April 29 to May 10, and charted the progress of the donations on a paper race course. For every $10 donated, each grade’s marker was moved a “mile.” The goal was for each grade finish a 26-mile marathon by raising $260.

The Van Horn Group pledged to match any donation up to $500.

The class that raised the most money won a pizza party, while other classes enjoyed ice cream.
