In an effort to raise money for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation, students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School kicked off their annual Walk for a Wish fundraising campaign in early March.

With more than $100,000 raised since the district launched its first campaign, the Harborfields community has helped make a wish come true for at least nine children who suffer from serious illnesses. Participants from all facets of the community are invited to raise donations and walk around the track each year at Harborfields High School to help benefit a child in the surrounding community.

Sponsored jointly by the Walk for a Wish Committee of Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School, the Acts of Kindness Committee at Washington Drive Primary School and the schools’ respective PTAs, the fundraising event will take place on April 18 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

If you are interested in contributing to the Walk for a Wish drive, please send donations to Washington Drive Primary School’s Acts of Kindness Committee or Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School’s Walk for a Wish Committee. To donate online, visit
