The Annual JHS Penny Wars raised $3,615.44 for Centaur Stride with the Junior Class raising the most money.
Centaur Stride is a therapeutic horse riding and care program for people with and without disabilities. The donation was made in memory of Raymond Tomassini, who passed away on Sept. 21 of this year.
Tomassini’s son Matthew, who graduated from JHS in 2010, is a rider at Centaur Stride and has been receiving weekly therapy from the program. As a result, Tomassini was very actively involved in volunteering with the program. Tomassini’s wife, Claire, also works with Centaur Stride as an office manager and treasurer.
Great Job by JHS to raise money for a local charity.
