Jog-a-thon held to buy LifeStraws
The La Cañada High School Red Cross, Key and Amnesty International clubs pooled their resources to host a jog-a-thon last month to raise money to buy LifeStraws, devices through which mud and dirty water can be filtered for safe drinking. The clubs hosted the event in hopes of buying the devices to send to impoverished people in Africa.
About 20 students elicited donations from sponsors and participated in the April 24 run.
T-ball season begins at community center
After a week of delays due to the rain, the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge welcomed the T-ball season.
For some children, T-ball is their first experience with a team sport, and so coaches began with the basics of running bases, fielding and sportsmanship. From there, coaches will build up their team’s self confidence on the field until they can begin scrimmaging.
