Limestone High School Begins Annual Easterseals Fundraiser

Last year the school raised over $67,000

BARTONVILLE, Ill - For the next two weeks students and staff at Limestone High school are dedicating there time to help fundraise for Easterseals.

Today the opening ceremony for the annual event was held in the schools gymnasium

67 thousand dollars are numbers not usually associated with a school fundraiser; however, these large donations are a way of life at Limestone Community High  School when it comes to the giving heart they have for Easter Seals.

For the past 41-years The Students that call themselves the rockets, have been helping individuals lift off and reach their milestones.  The Fundraiser is a a combination of events ranging from athletic focus, to food, to general donations. Staff involved say that no event is too small because the main thought that goes into the annual Easter Seals Campaign is to provide opportunities for every student to get involved.

" I think it’s not just supporting Easterseals financially, but its supporting it through effort. A lot of our kids go to Easterseal camps and work, getting to know the world through somebody else’s eyes,” says Principal Jeri Look.
