Walk for Diabetes at Central Middle School. Central Middle School students participated in a school Walk for Diabetes on November 19. Students and teachers walked together to raise funds to support the important research information and advocacy efforts of the American Diabetes Association. Not only did the students raise funds, but they actively learned life-long lessons about the seriousness of diabetes and how eating healthy and exercise can help prevent the disease. Students raised over $3,100 for this cause. Among the students raising money, raised over $100 were Allison Manuel, Samantha Manuel, and Dylan Duplechin. One student Alex Antoine raised over $300.
