Tree of Life preschoolers raise $2,000 for St. Judes

The art of giving began at an early age in Shady Cove last week. Pre-schoolers at Tree of Life Christian Child Care Center in Shady Cove held a Trike-A-Thon to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
    
The 21 little ones, ranging in age from one year to six years, made 776 laps around the lot at their school and collected $2,000 at press time with more money on the way.
   
The children were educated in safe riding with a week-long fun activity that also made parents aware of safe behavior. At the Trike-A-Thon representatives of Fire District No. 4 and the Shady Cove Police Department, along with parents. held up signs, such as stop to encourage children to recognize the signs and to obey them.
   
Tree of Life is located at 21843 Hwy. 62 or call 878-5388 for information on the pre-school or to donate to the St. Judge Trike-A-Thon.
