She said it’s the first major event they have held since the pandemic began. “It just brings tears to my eyes, the kids all week, every kid in the school is talking about the walkathon, if they get to be out of uniform, about the popcorn, about the bracelets,” said Lincoln teacher Hedy Elliott, who organized the Walk-a-Thon.
“It’s just been thrilling to see the excitement on the kids’ faces, and the excitement and the staff. coming together. We haven’t been together in 18 months,” Elliott said. All money raised went to Haitian Hearts, a nonprofit that flies children from Haiti to Peoria for heart surgery.
